Jonah 2

[1] [2] [3] [4]

2:1 (2:2) Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly.

2:2 (2:3) And he said: I called out of mine affliction unto the LORD, and He answered me; out of the belly of the nether-world cried I, and Thou heardest my voice.

2:3 (2:4) 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.

2:4 (2:5) And I said: 'I am cast out from before Thine eyes'; yet I will look again toward Thy holy temple.

2:5 (2:6) The waters compassed me about, even to the soul; the deep was round about me; the weeds were wrapped about my head.

2:6 (2:7) I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars closed upon me for ever; yet hast Thou brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God.

2:7 (2:8) When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the LORD; and my prayer came in unto Thee, into Thy holy temple.

2:8 (2:9) They that regard lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

2:9 (2:10) But I will sacrifice unto Thee with the voice of thanksgiving; that which I have vowed I will pay. Salvation is of the LORD.

2:10 (2:11) And the LORD spoke unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
