Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jonah 4:9

And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be (g) angry, [even] unto death.

(g) This declares the great inconveniences into which God's servants fall when they give place to their own affections, and do not in all things willingly submit themselves to God.
