Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Jonah 3:6-10 (NLT)
6 When the king of Nineveh heard what Jonah was saying, he stepped down from his throne and took off his royal robes. He dressed himself in sackcloth and sat on a heap of ashes.
7 Then the king and his nobles sent this decree throughout the city: “No one, not even the animals, may eat or drink anything at all. 8 Everyone is required to wear sackcloth and pray earnestly to God. Everyone must turn from their evil ways and stop all their violence. 9 Who can tell? Perhaps even yet God will have pity on us and hold back his fierce anger from destroying us.”
10 When God saw that they had put a stop to their evil ways, he had mercy on them and didn’t carry out the destruction he had threatened.


Indeterminate from scriptures, some time during the day.

Light is coming in from the door, unseen, off to the right of the scene.

The Assyrian king, wearing sackcloth & sitting in a pile of ashes. The King’s scribe, taking down the king’s decree, which went out to the whole city of Nineveh.

I managed to find some pictures of what the Assyrians used to wear, on the internet, which helped when it came to drawing the residents of Nineveh.
