1: Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God out of the fish's belly, 2: And said, I cried by reason of my affliction to the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, [and] thou heardst my voice. 3: For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods encompassed me: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me. 4: Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again towards thy holy temple. 5: The waters encompassed me, [even] to the soul: the depth inclosed me on every side, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6: I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars [was] about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. 7: When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came to thee, into thy holy temple. 8: They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 9: But I will sacrifice to thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay [that] which I have vowed. Salvation [is] of the LORD. 10: And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry [land].
