And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s walk, and he cried out and said, “In forty days Nineveh will be overthrown!” Bible other translations

“In forty days Nineveh will be overthrown.” This prophecy of Jonah did not come to pass because the circumstances changed and the people of Nineveh repented (see commentary on Deut. 18:20 about genuine and false prophets).
