Jonah and the worm that ate the gourd

The anger and bitterness that Jonah expressed when the worm ate his gourd is a statement of the anger of Jonah with God who failed to destroy the people of Ninevah. This was in fact the third time that Jonah expressed his anger. He was mad that God sent him to warn the people of Ninevah. Then he was mad that God did not destroy the people of Ninevah. Finally he was mad and angry that the worm ate his gourd. Jonah was an angry prophet.
