||God's word came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying:
Vayehi devar-Adonay el-Yonah ven-Amitay lemor.
||Arise, go to the great city of Nineveh, and proclaim against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me.
Kum lech el-Nineveh ha'ir hagdolah ukra aleyha ki-altah ra'atam lefanay.
||But Jonah rose up to flee from God's presence to Tarshish. He went down to Jaffa and found a ship bound for Tarshish; so he paid the fare, and went aboard into it, to go with them to Tarshish away from God's presence.
Vayakom Yonah livroach Tarshishah milifeney Adonay vayered Yafo vayimtsa onyah ba'ah Tarshish vayiten secharah vayered bah lavo imahem Tarshishah milifeney Adonay.
