Jonah 2 ©

Jonah’s prayer, v. 1. etc. The fish, at God’s command, spews out Jonah on shore, 10.


THEN Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly,


And 1said, Ia2cried 3by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the 4belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.


For 5thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the 6midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billowsb and thy waves passed over me.


Then I 7said, I am 8cast out of thy sight; yet I will 9look again toward thy holy 10temple.


The waters compassed me about, even to the 11soul: the depth closed me round about, the 12weeds were wrapped about my head.


I went down to the 13bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her 14bars was about me 15for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from 16corruption, O LORD my God.


When my soul 17fainted within me I 18remembered the LORD: and my prayer 19came in unto thee, into thine holy 20temple.


They that observe 21lying vanities 22forsake their own mercy.


But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice ofc23thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have 24vowed. 25Salvationdis of the LORD.


¶And the LORD 26spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the 27dry land.
