Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:2 -

I called to the LORD in my distress,

and he answered me.

I cried out for help from deep inside[fn] Sheol;

you heard my voice.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:3 -

You threw me into the depths,

into the heart of the seas,

and the current[fn] overcame me.

All your breakers and your billows swept over me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:4 -

But I said, “I have been banished

from your sight,

yet I will look once more[fn]

toward your holy temple.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:5 -

“The water engulfed me up to the neck;[fn]

the watery depths overcame me;

seaweed was wrapped around my head.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:6 -

“I sank to the foundations of the mountains,

the earth’s gates shut behind me forever!

Then you raised my life from the Pit, LORD my God!

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:7 -

“As my life was fading away,

I remembered the LORD,

and my prayer came to you,

to your holy temple.

“Those who cherish worthless idols

abandon their faithful love,

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:9 -

“but as for me, I will sacrifice to you

with a voice of thanksgiving.

I will fulfill what I have vowed.

Salvation[fn] belongs to the LORD.”

Then the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
