Jonah 2

1Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly, 2And said, I cried by reason of my affliction to 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
3For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods surrounded me: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.
midst: Heb. heart
4Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. 5The waters surrounded me, even to the soul: the depth inclosed me on every side, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6I 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
7When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came to thee, into thy holy temple. 8They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 9But I will sacrifice to thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.

10And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land .
