Ba’utha – The Supplication of the Ninevites


A special mini-season is the three day emulation of the Supplication of the Ninevites, remembering the preaching of Jonah to the city of Nineveh. This penetential celebration was added to the calendar in the 6th Century AD following an epidemic which ended after a period of penance and prayer.

Below, you will find links to audio recordings for each of the three days, including text and audio of the prayers in both Chaldean and English.
