“I acried out to the Lord because of my affliction,
bAnd He answered me.
“Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
And You heard my voice.
3 cFor You cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the floods surrounded me;
dAll Your billows and Your waves passed over me.
4 eThen I said, ‘I have been cast out of Your sight;
Yet I will look again ftoward Your holy temple.’
5 The gwaters surrounded me, even to my soul;
The deep closed around me;
Weeds were wrapped around my head.
6 I went down to the 1moorings of the mountains;
The earth with its bars closed behind me forever;
Yet You have brought up my hlife from the pit,
O Lord, my God.
I remembered the Lord;
iAnd my prayer went up to You,
Into Your holy temple.
8 “Those who regard jworthless idols
Forsake their own 2Mercy.
9 But I will ksacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have lvowed.
