Job 42:6; Ezekiel 27:30; Jonah 3:6; Matthew 11:21

therefore I despise myself,

and repent1 in ldust and ashes.

30  uand shout aloud over you

and cry out bitterly.

vThey cast dust on their heads

wand wallow in ashes;

The People of Nineveh Repent

The word reached1 the king of Nineveh, and phe arose from his throne, removed his robe, covered himself with sackcloth, qand sat in ashes.

21 aWoe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in bTyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
