THE BOOK OF JONAH
1: The LORD ordered the prophet Jonah to go the corrupt town of Nineveh and preach to its people.
2: Here's how Jonah responded...
3: What a pain in the butt!
4: The people of Nineveh don't believe in the LORD, so it won't matter what I say to them!
5: Let's go somewhere else instead!
6: It's a storm! We're going to sink!
7: Let's offer up a sacrifice to the sea!
8: These passengers are the reason the storm came!
9: Oh no! Is it because I disobeyed the LORD?!
*Jonah 1 ~ 3
1: Aaaahh! I'm sorry!
3: I'm inside the fish's belly! The LORD must be punishing me...
4: O LORD! Please forgive me!
6: If you're truly sorry, then hurry on to Nineveh!
7: Y-yes, LORD!
1: Not like they'll believe me, though...
2: You must repent, or Nineveh will perish! This is the word of the LORD!
3: You mean the LORD really is watching over us?
4: Let's change our ways!
5: I'm going to start living an honest life!
6: Me too!
7: What? That was quick! Really quick...
8: Now, I promise that Nineveh will prosper in the future!
9: What?! Nineveh's going to prosper again?!
10: What's the use? They'll just get corrupt again and be destroyed. Maybe I'll even stick around to watch the fireworks!
11: Jonah! The sun is getting hot, so allow me to create some shade for you.
1: Woaaahh... uh-oh...
2: All the plants dried out! The sun is really getting hot! What's going on here?!
3: Jonah! You aren't the one who planted and grew that tree!
5: How could you get angry after seeing it dry out? You're only thinking about your own discomfort! Over 100,000 people live in the town of Nineveh!
6: If you really cared about their lives, you would never wish ruin upon them! Repent for your sins, Jonah!
7: Yes, LORD!
8: Although it's a short story, the Book of Jonah depicts moments of weakness that humans often fall into. People also say that The Book of Jonah was the inspiration for the fish scene in Pinocchio.
