    I have fallen on this story today. I am struggling with a leg and back injury. I am cut off from most of my family. I take most bible teachings with me everyday. I am a sinner and it ashames me. My want to be home with family hastens most interactions with people. I am happy because this stories beggining I hardly remember. I was usually being calmed down for bed, while it was read.

    Jonah knew he was serving the great God as he told the people, yet he decided to be disobedient because he thought God will blush off his refusal to go to Nineveh for the assignment, may be as before; forgetting that lives are very precious to God and so He decided to give them a fair chance to repent and not perish. That is why God let Jonah taste a bit of the forthcoming punishment for Nineveh

    V. 17 "three days and three nights" Mon. day. Mon. night, Tue. day, Tue. night, Wed. day, Wed. night=3 days, daylight, 3 nights, darkness. It looks to me that it means what it says.
