Jonah 2 : 1 - 10

Chapter 2

1Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the fish's belly.
2And he said: "I cried out to the LORD because of my affliction, And He answered me. "Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, And You heard my voice.
3For You cast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, And the floods surrounded me; All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.
4Then I said, "I have been cast out of Your sight; Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.'
5The waters surrounded me, even to my soul; The deep closed around me; Weeds were wrapped around my head.
6I went down to the moorings of the mountains; The earth with its bars closed behind me forever; Yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O LORD, my God.
7"When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the LORD; And my prayer went up to You, Into Your holy temple.
8"Those who regard worthless idols Forsake their own Mercy.
9But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD."
10So the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
