|Jon 2:1 Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the stomach of the fish,|
|Jon 2:2 and he said,
"I called out of my distress to the LORD,
And He answered me.
I cried for help from the depth of Sheol;
You heard my voice.
|Jon 2:3 "For You had cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the current engulfed me.
All Your breakers and billows passed over me.
|Jon 2:4 "So I said, 'I have been expelled from Your sight.
Nevertheless I will look again toward Your holy temple.'
|Jon 2:5 "Water encompassed me to the point of death.
The great deep engulfed me,
Weeds were wrapped around my head.
|Jon 2:6 "I descended to the roots of the mountains.
The earth with its bars was around me forever,
But You have brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God.
|Jon 2:7 "While I was fainting away,
I remembered the LORD,
And my prayer came to You,
Into Your holy temple.
|Jon 2:8 "Those who regard vain idols
Forsake their faithfulness,
|Jon 2:9 But I will sacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving.
That which I have vowed I will pay.
Salvation is from the LORD."
|Jon 2:10 ¶ Then the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.|
