Nineveh was a huge and important city to the Lord.
See footnote 1 in the ESV of Jonah 3:3 for the city being important to God.
Jonah entered Nineveh and preached that it would be destroyed in 40 days.
The Ninevites believed God, so they all mourned.
The king commanded everyone to fast, cry out to God, and repent, because he hoped God would repent and thus not destroy them.
When God saw that the Ninevites turned from their sin, he turned from destroying them.
When Jonah preached, the Ninevites turned from their sin, and God turned from destroying them.
The king of Nineveh mourned too, and commanded everyone to repent, so that God wouldn't destroy them.
When Jonah prophesied Nineveh's destruction, the Ninevites repented because they didn't want God to destroy them.
The Lord told Jonah to go preach against Nineveh, so he obeyed.
