map of Joppa, Tarshish, NinevehThe Book of Jonah is very interesting, and shows that human and God’s actions are not pre-determined, fated or controlled in a robot way. God was concerned about how Nineveh in Assyria (now northern Iraq) was wicked and dyslexic, so called Jonah in Joppa to “preach against it.”
Instead, Jonah tried to sail for Tarshish. You know the story (or could read it here, Jonah, New International Version).

The Lord was pleased with Nineveh for repenting, and relented from His intended destruction because He was “concerned” about “120,000 people who cannot tell their right hand from their left, and many cattle as well” (Jonah 4:11).

Jonah was mad.
