And the word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time saying:

Nineveh.

280 miles north of Babylon,

400 N. E. of Damascus, in latitude

20 N. longitude

73?

10' E. It was not only a very ancient, (Ge

10:11,) but also a very great city. Strabo says that it was much larger than Babylon, the circuit of which he estimates at

385 furlongs; and, according to Diodorus Siculus, it was an oblong parallelogram, extending

150 furlongs in length,

90 in breadth, and

480 in circumference, i.e., about

20 miles long,

12 broad, and

60 in compass. This agrees with the account given here of its being an exceeding great city of three days' journey, i.e., in circuit; for

20 miles a day was the common computation for a pedestrian. It was surrounded by large walls

100 feet high, so broad that three chariots could drive abreast on them, and defended by

1,500 towers

200 feet in height. See notes on Nahum.
