No Right – Jonah 4:3-4

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Jonah 4:3-4
“Now, O YHWH, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live.” But YHWH replied, “Have you any right to be angry?”

YHWH was telling Jonah he had no right to be angry. No right. Scripturally speaking, to my understanding anyway, there is nothing given to us as to why Jonah wanted the judgement to fall so bad. I’ve heard some say the situation with Nineveh and Israel in the days of Jonah could be compared to the days of Germany and the Jews at the time of Hitler. I have no idea if that claim is correct at all.

However, what if it was true? Let’s say for the moment that it was. That being said, consider verse 4 again in that light.

4 But YHWH replied, “Have you any right to be angry?”

IF… IF, that was the case, we could see and understand, at least a little bit more, the reasoning to Jonah’s actions. However, YHWH was still saying Jonah had no right to be angry that judgement didn’t fall. No right.

What kind of “rights” are you trying to justify in your life today?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
