2 Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly. And he said:

“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.

7 “When my soul fainted within me,

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.

mSalvation is of the nLord.”

10 So the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
