Jonah chapter 2

Bible Version
Book
Chapter
1
Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the stomach of the fish,
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.
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.
4
"So I said, 'I have been expelled from Your sight. Nevertheless I will look again toward Your holy temple.'
5
"Water encompassed me to the point of death. The great deep engulfed me, Weeds were wrapped around my head.
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.
7
"While I was fainting away, I remembered the LORD, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple.
8
"Those who regard vain idols Forsake their faithfulness,
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."
10
Then the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.
