Jonas, repining to see that his prophecy is not fulfilled, is reproved by the type of the ivy.

[1] And Jonas was exceedingly troubled, and was angry:
Et afflictus est Jonas afflictione magna, et iratus est :

[2] And he prayed to the Lord, and said: I beseech thee, O Lord, is not this what I said, when I was yet in my own country? therefore I went before to flee into Tharsis: for I know that thou art a gracious and merciful God, patient, and of much compassion, and easy to forgive evil.
et oravit ad Dominum, et dixit : Obsecro, Domine, numquid non hoc est verbum meum cum adhuc essem in terra mea? propter hoc praeoccupavi ut fugerem in Tharsis : scio enim quia tu Deus clemens et misericors es, patiens et multae miserationis, et ignoscens super malitia.

[3] And now, O Lord, I beseech thee take my life from me: for it is better for me to die than to live.
Et nunc, Domine, tolle, quaeso, animam meam a me, quia melior est mihi mors quam vita.

[4] And the Lord said: Dost thou think thou hast reason to be angry?
Et dixit Dominus : Putasne bene irasceris tu?

[5] Then Jonas went out of the city, and sat toward the east side of the city: and he made himself a booth there, and he sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would befall the city.
Et egressus est Jonas de civitate, et sedit contra orientem civitatis : et fecit sibimet umbraculum ibi, et sedebat subter illud in umbra, donec videret quid accideret civitati.

[6] And the Lord God prepared an ivy, and it came up over the head of Jonas, to be a shadow over his head, and to cover him (for he was fatigued), and Jonas was exceeding glad of the ivy.
Et praeparavit Dominus Deus hederam, et ascendit super caput Jonae, ut esset umbra super caput ejus, et protegeret eum ( laboraverat enim) : et laetatus est Jonas super hedera laetitia magna.

[7] But God prepared a worm, when the morning arose on the following day: and it struck the ivy and it withered.
Et paravit Deus vermen ascensu diluculi in crastinum : et percussit hederam, et exaruit.

[8] And when the sun was risen, the Lord commanded a hot and burning wind: and the sun beat upon the head of Jonas, and he broiled with the heat: and he desired for his soul that he might die, and said: It is better for me to die than to live.
Et cum ortus fuisset sol, praecepit Dominus vento calido et urenti : et percussit sol super caput Jonae, et aestuabat : et petivit animae suae ut moreretur, et dixit : Melius est mihi mori quam vivere.

[9] And the Lord said to Jonas: Dost thou think thou hast reason to be angry, for the ivy? And he said: I am angry with reason even unto death.
Et dixit Dominus ad Jonam : Putasne bene irasceris tu super hedera? Et dixit : Bene irascor ego usque ad mortem.

[10] And the Lord said: Thou art grieved for the ivy, for which thou hast not laboured, nor made it to grow, which in one night came up, and in one night perished.
Et dixit Dominus : Tu doles super hederam in qua non laborasti, neque fecisti ut cresceret; quae sub una nocte nata est, et sub una nocte periit :

[11] And shall not I spare Ninive, that great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons that know not how to distinguish between their right hand and their left, and many beasts?
et ego non parcam Ninive, civitati magnae, in qua sunt plus quam centum viginti millia hominum qui nesciunt quid sit inter dexteram et sinistram suam, et jumenta multa?
