Jonah 2

Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God out of the fish's belly, And 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} For 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} Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. The waters surrounded me, even to the soul: the depth inclosed me on every side, 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 to thee, into thy holy temple. They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. But I will sacrifice to thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.

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