Jonah 4:2-4 Expanded Bible (EXB)

He prayed to the Lord, “When I was still in my own country ·this is [L isn’t this…?] what I said would happen, and that is why I quickly ran away to Tarshish [1:3]. I knew that you are a God who is ·kind [gracious] and ·shows mercy [compassionate]. ·You don’t become angry quickly […slow to anger], and you ·have great love [abound in lovingkindness/mercy; Ex. 34:6–7]. I knew you would ·choose not to cause [relent from doing] harm. So now I ask you, Lord, please ·kill me [take my life]. It is better for me to die than to live.”

Then the Lord said, “Do you think it is right for you to be angry?”
