Jonah 2

Jonah’s Prayer

Ch 2:2 in Heb
Then Jonah prayed to the  Lord his God b from the stomach of the fish,
and he said, “I c called out of my distress to the  Lord,
And He answered me.
I cried for help from the
Lit belly
depth of e Sheol;
You heard my voice.
“For You had f cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the current
Lit surrounded
engulfed me.
All Your h breakers and billows passed over me.
So I said, ‘I have been i expelled from
Lit before Your eyes
Your sight.
Nevertheless I will look again k toward Your holy temple.’
l Water encompassed me to the
Lit soul
point of death.
The great n deep
Lit surrounded
engulfed me,
Weeds were wrapped around my head.
“I p descended to the roots of the mountains.
The earth with its q bars was around me forever,
But You have r brought up my life from
Or corruption
the pit, O  Lord my God.
Lit my soul...within me
I was u fainting away,
I v remembered the  Lord,
And my w prayer came to You,
Into x Your holy temple.
“Those who y regard
Lit empty vanities
vain idols
Forsake their faithfulness,
But I will aa sacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving.
That which I have vowed I will ab pay.
ac Salvation is from the  Lord.”

10 Then the  Lord commanded the ad fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.
