G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Jonah 3



Verses 1-10

Immediately Jonah was again charged to go to Nineveh. There is a fine revelation of the patient grace of God toward His servant in the statement, "The word of the Lord came unto Jonah the second time." With a new sense of the authority of Jehovah, Jonah arose and obeyed.

It was a strange and startling thing for Nineveh, this arrival of a man who had been cast into the deep; and it is easy to understand how the monotony of his declaration, that within forty days Nineveh would be destroyed, would fill the hearts of the people with terror. They heard; they believed; they were filled with fear, and repented, from the greatest to the least. Their repentance was answered by the repentance of God, so that the doom was averted and the city spared.
