and he answered me.
I called to you from the land of the dead,[fn]
and LORD, you heard me!

and I sank down to the heart of the sea.
The mighty waters engulfed me;

Yet I will look once more toward your holy Temple.’

and the waters closed over me.
Seaweed wrapped itself around my head.

I was imprisoned in the earth,
whose gates lock shut forever.
But you, O LORD my God,
snatched me from the jaws of death!

I remembered the LORD.
And my earnest prayer went out to you
in your holy Temple.

turn their backs on all God’s mercies.

and I will fulfill all my vows.
For my salvation comes from the LORD alone.”
