Jonah 2 ©

1 The prayer of Jonah. 10 He is delivered out of the belly of the fish.


THEN Jonah aprayed unto the LORD bhis God cout of the fish's belly,


And said, I dcried 1by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he eheard me; fout of the belly of 2hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.


For thou ghadst cast me into the deep, in the 3midst of the seas; and the hfloods *compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.


Then I said, iI am cast out of thy sight; yet I will jlook again toward thy holy temple.


The kwaters *compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.


I went down to the 4bottoms of the mountains; the earth with lher bars was about me for ever: myet hast thou brought up my life from 5corruption, O LORD my God.


When nmy soul ofainted within me pI remembered the LORD: and qmy prayer came in unto thee, into thine rholy temple.


They that sobserve lying vanities forsake ttheir own mercy.


But uI will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. vSalvation is of the LORD.


¶And the LORD wspake unto the fish, and xit vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
