Jonah 2

1(2:2) And Jonah prayed to the Lord his God out of the belly of the whale, 2(2:3) and said, I cried in my affliction to the Lord my God, and He hearkened unto me, even to my cry out of the belly of hell: You heard my voice. 3(2:4) For You have cast me into the depths of the heart of the sea, and the floods compassed me: all Your billows and Your waves have passed upon me. 4(2:5) And I said, I am cast out of Your presence: shall I indeed look again toward Your holy temple? 5(2:6) Water was poured around me to the soul: the lowest deep compassed me, my head went down 6(2:7) to the clefts of the mountains; I went down into the earth, whose bars are the everlasting barriers: yet, O Lord my God, let my ruined life be restored. 7(2:8) When my soul was failing me, I remembered the Lord; and may my prayer come to You into Your holy temple. 8(2:9) Those that observe vanities and lies have forsaken their own mercy. 9(2:10) But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of praise and thanksgiving: all that I have vowed I will pay to You, the Lord of my salvation. 10(2:11) And the whale was commanded by the Lord, and it cast up Jonah on the dry land.
