Jonah 2:2–9

I called to the Lord in my distress,ak

and he answered me.

I cried out for help from deep insideC Sheol;al

you heard my voice.am

You threw me into the depths,an

into the heart of the seas,ao

and the currentD overcame me.

All your breakers and your billows swept over me.ap

But I said, “I have been banishedaq

from your sight,ar

yet I will look once moreE

toward your holy temple.as

The water engulfed me up to the neck;F,at

the watery depths overcame me;

seaweed was wrapped around my head.au

I sank to the foundations of the mountains,av

the earth’s gates shut behind me forever!aw

Then you raised my lifeax from the Pit, Lord my God!ay

As my life was fading away,a

I remembered the Lord,b

and my prayer came to you,c

to your holy temple.d

Those who cherish worthless idolse

abandon their faithful love,f

but as for me, I will sacrificeg to you

with a voice of thanksgiving.h

I will fulfilli what I have vowed.

SalvationA belongs to the Lord.”j
