| 1 Then Jonah prayed unto Jehovah his God out of the fish's belly.
2 And he said, I called by reason of mine affliction unto Jehovah, And he
answered me; Out of the belly of Sheol cried I, And thou heardest my
voice. 3 For thou didst cast me into the depth, in the heart of the seas,
And the flood was round about me; All thy waves and thy billows passed over
me. 4 And I said, I am cast out from before thine eyes; Yet I will look
again toward thy holy temple. 5 The waters compassed me about, even to the
soul; The deep was round about me; The weeds were wrapped about my head.
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; The earth with its bars
closed upon me for ever: Yet hast thou brought up my life from the
pit, O Jehovah my God. 7 When my soul fainted within me, I remembered
Jehovah; And my prayer came in unto thee, into thy holy temple. 8 They
that regard lying vanities Forsake their own mercy. 9 But I will sacrifice
unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed.
Salvation is of Jehovah. 10 And Jehovah spake unto the fish, and it
vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.|
