“I cried out to the LORD because of my affliction,
And He answered me.

“Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
And You heard my voice.

Into the heart of the seas,
And the floods surrounded me;
All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:4 - Then I said, ‘I have been cast out of Your sight;
Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:5 - The waters surrounded me, even to my soul;
The deep closed around me;
Weeds were wrapped around my head.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:6 - I went down to the moorings of the mountains;
The earth with its bars closed behind me forever;
Yet You have brought up my life from the pit,
O LORD, my God.

I remembered the LORD;
And my prayer went up to You,
Into Your holy temple.

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:8 - “Those who regard worthless idols
Forsake their own Mercy.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJon 2:10 - So the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
