3 Revised Standard Version Passage

1Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying,Jonah obeys the LORD. Jon.3.1-10
2"Arise, go to Nin'eveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you." 
3So Jonah arose and went to Nin'eveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nin'eveh was an exceedingly great city, three days' journey in breadth. 
4JONAH began to go into the city, going a day's journey. And he cried, "Yet forty days, and Nin'eveh shall be overthrown!" 
5And the people of Nin'eveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them to the least of them. 
6Then tidings reached the king of Nin'eveh, and he arose from his throne, removed his robe, and covered himself with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. 
7And he made proclamation and published through Nin'eveh, "By the decree of the king and his nobles: Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; let them not feed, or drink water, 
8but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and let them cry mightily to God; yea, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence which is in his hands. 
9Who knows, God may yet repent and turn from his fierce anger, so that we perish not?" 
10When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God repented of the evil which he had said he would do to them; and he did not do it.
