God's final rebuke tells Jonah that the fault lies entirely in him, not in God: "Wer I as hastif as pou heere, were harme lumpen; / Coupe I not pole bot as pou, pere pryued ful fewe" [Were I as hasty as you here, much harm had been done; / Should I forbear no better than you, few souls would be safe] (521-2).
