    17. 17. Jonah went out and sat down at a place east of the city. There he made himself a shelter, sat in its shade and waited to see what would happen to the city. Then the Lord God provided a vine and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade for his head to ease his discomfort, and Jonah was very happy about the vine.
    18. 18. But at dawn the next day God provided a worm, which chewed the vine so that it withered. When the son rose, God provided a scorching east wind and the sun blazed on Jonah's head so that he grew faint. He wanted to die and said 'It would be better for me to die than to live.' —Jonah 4:5-8
    19. 19. But the Lord said: 'You have been concerned about this vine, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. But Ninevah has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left, and many cattle as well. Should I not be concerned about this great city?'— Jonah 4:10-11
