'City' in the Bible

"Go immediately to Nineveh, that large capital city, and announce judgment against its people because their wickedness has come to my attention."

Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee.

So Jonah arose and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey.

Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried out, and said, "In forty days, Nineveh will be overthrown!"

Then Jonah went out from the city and sat east of it. There he made a shelter for himself and sat under it in the shade until he could see what would happen in the city.

"Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?"
