The word of Yahweh came to Jonah a second time, saying, 2 “Get up, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.” 3 So Jonah got up and went to Nineveh, according to the word of Yahweh. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly large city, a three days’ walk across. 4 Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s walk. He proclaimed, “Forty more days, and Nineveh’s about to change” (Jon 3:1-4) (translation mine).
I pose two questions:
1. How does this passage suggest that God did not trust Jonah?
2. In what ways did Jonah undermine God’s oracle?
