Jonah Flees the Presence of the Lord

Now the word of the Lord came to aJonah the son of Amittai, saying,


39 But he answered them, xAn evil and yadulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For zjust as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, aso will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
