Jonah's Prayer

“I called out of my distress to the LORD,
And He answered me.
I cried for help from the [fn]depth of Sheol;
You heard my voice.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:3 - “For You had cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the current [fn]engulfed me.
All Your breakers and billows passed over me.

Nevertheless I will look again toward Your holy temple.’

The great deep [fn]engulfed me,
Weeds were wrapped around my head.

The earth with its bars was around me forever,
But You have brought up my life from [fn]the pit, O LORD my God.

I remembered the LORD,
And my prayer came to You,
Into Your holy temple.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:8 - “Those who regard [fn]vain idols
Forsake their faithfulness,

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:9 - But I will sacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving.
That which I have vowed I will pay.
Salvation is from the LORD.”
