Jonah 2

And the Lord made ready a large fish to swallow up Jonah: and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Then prayed Jonah unto the Lord his God out of the belly of the fish. And he said, I called from the midst of my distress unto the Lord, and he hath answered me: out of the depth of the grave have I cried, and thou hast heard my voice. For thou hast cast me into the deep, in the heart of the seas; and the stream compasseth me about: all thy billows and thy waves have passed over me. And I thought indeed, I am driven out from before thy eyes: yet I again shall look toward thy holy temple. The waters surrounded me, to the peril of my life; the deep compassed me about: sea-weeds were bound about my head. To the bottoms of the mountains did I go down; the earth closed her bars about me for ever: when thou broughtest up my life from the pit, O Lord my God! When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came unto thee, unto thy holy temple. They that guard false vanities forsake the source of their kindness. 10 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; that which I have vowed will I pay; for help is with the Lord. And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
