(Saint) Prophet. (December 1) (7th cent. B.C.) One of the Minor Prophets, supposed to have been a native of Northern Palestine. His short prophecy of three chapters is directed against Ninive, the great city of the Assyrians, by whom his compatriots of the Ten Tribes were shortly after led into captivity. He lived to see come to pass the destruction of Ninive, which he had foretold.
