Believe = NIPHAL - wearing; to prove to be firm, reliable, faithful, permanent; to believe, think
The people of Nineveh admitted that the Jewish God was the reliable God, the faithful God, the permanent God, and they put the true God on. And when they did this, they literally put on sackcloth to show how serious they were about this new-found belief.
