Jonah 3 The repentant city

Read Jonah 3

I have more questions than answers from this chapter. How far did Jonah go from where the fish vomited him up to get to Nineveh? Did he take a bath and change clothes before going to town?

Maybe his appearance was part of what moved the people. Imagine a man looking a bit pale, clothes tattered, stinks like fish puke. Maybe he has some partially digested fish stuck to him. He walks into town and proclaims judgment from God. That just might get someones attention.

We're not told what the sins of the city were but that when the king heard of the judgment he repented and called the people to also.

Until the judgment of God actually falls, there is time for repentance.

Today's workout.  Step up, squat, grapevine, Y, lunge r, triceps press, lunge l, hamstring curl, jump rope.   36 intervals.
