Unlike the people of Nineva, who heeded the voice of Jonah, the prophet, and repented of their sins and became righteous, the people of Jerusalem rejected the call of repentance. The evil planted in their hearts led up tot the need of Lehi to flee the land for safety. By fleeing our of Jerusalem Lehi's life was spared and also that of his family. If Lehi had ignored the warning of God, then the tender mercies of the Lord would not take effect and Lehi would have been in Jerusalem when it was destroyed.
