The King Tore His Clothes

2 Kings 22:11 (NIV), “When the king [Josiah] heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his robes.”

“Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes.” Jonah 3:6


“The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a Greater than Jonah is here.”                                                                        Jesus in Matthew 12:41
