Jonah 2


Then Jonah prayed unto the  Lord his God out of the fish's belly, And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the  Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.
by…: or, out of mine affliction
hell: or, the grave
For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.
midst: Heb. heart
Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. The waters 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 bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O  Lord my God.
bottoms: Heb. cuttings off
corruption: or, the pit
When my soul fainted within me I remembered the  Lord: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple. They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the  Lord.

10 And the  Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
