Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:1 - Then Jonah prayed unto Jehovah his God out of the fish’s belly.

I called by reason of mine affliction unto Jehovah,
And he answered me;
Out of the belly of Sheol cried I,
And thou heardest my voice.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:3 -
For thou didst cast me into the depth, in the heart of the seas,
And the flood was round about me;
All thy waves and thy billows passed over me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:4 -
And I said, I am cast out from before thine eyes;
Yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:5 -
The waters compassed me about, even to the soul;
The deep was round about me;
The weeds were wrapped about my head.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:6 -
I went down to the bottoms of the mountains;
The earth with its bars closed upon me for ever:
Yet hast thou brought up my life from the pit, O Jehovah my God.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:7 -
When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Jehovah;
And my prayer came in unto thee, into thy holy temple.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:8 -
They that regard lying vanities
Forsake their own mercy.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:9 -
But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay that which I have vowed.
Salvation is of Jehovah.
Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:10 - And Jehovah spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
