 Revised Standard Version<< Jonah:2 >>Biblia Hebraica (Stuttgartensia) | BHS (pdf - 3.5mb)  

1 Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the belly of the fish, Jonah's prayer. Jon.2.1-10וַיִּתְפַּלֵּל יֹונָה אֶל־יְהוָה אֱלֹהָיו מִמְּעֵי הַדָּגָה׃
2 saying,

"I called to the LORD, out of my distress,
and he answered me;
out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
and thou didst hear my voice.

 וַיֹּאמֶר

קָרָאתִי מִצָּרָה לִי אֶל־יְהוָה וַיַּעֲנֵנִי
מִבֶּטֶן שְׁאֹול שִׁוַּעְתִּי שָׁמַעְתָּ קֹולִי׃

3 For thou didst cast me into the deep,
into the heart of the seas,
and the flood was round about me;
all thy waves and thy billows
passed over me.
 וַתַּשְׁלִיכֵנִי מְצוּלָה בִּלְבַב יַמִּים וְנָהָר יְסֹבְבֵנִי
כָּל־מִשְׁבָּרֶיךָ וְגַלֶּיךָ עָלַי עָבָרוּ׃
4 Then I said, 'I am cast out
from thy presence;
how shall I again look
upon thy holy temple?'
 וַאֲנִי אָמַרְתִּי נִגְרַשְׁתִּי מִנֶּגֶד עֵינֶיךָ
אַךְ אֹוסִיף לְהַבִּיט אֶל־הֵיכַל קָדְשֶׁךָ׃
5 The waters closed over me,
the deep was round me;
weeds are wrapped about my head
 אֲפָפוּנִי מַיִם עַד־נֶפֶשׁ תְּהֹום יְסֹבְבֵנִי
סוּף חָבוּשׁ לְרֹאשִׁי׃
6 at the roots of the mountains.
I went down to the land
whose bars closed upon me for ever;
yet thou didst bring up my life from the Pit,
O LORD my God.
 לְקִצְבֵי הָרִים
יָרַדְתִּי הָאָרֶץ בְּרִחֶיהָ בַעֲדִי לְעֹולָם
וַתַּעַל מִשַּׁחַת חַיַּי יְהוָה אֱלֹהָי׃
7 When my soul fainted within me,
I remembered the LORD;
and my prayer came to thee,
into thy holy temple.
 בְּהִתְעַטֵּף עָלַי נַפְשִׁי אֶת־יְהוָה זָכָרְתִּי
וַתָּבֹוא אֵלֶיךָ תְּפִלָּתִי אֶל־הֵיכַל קָדְשֶׁךָ׃
8 Those who pay regard to vain idols
forsake their true loyalty.
 מְשַׁמְּרִים הַבְלֵי־שָׁוְא חַסְדָּם יַעֲזֹבוּ׃
9 But I with the voice of thanksgiving
will sacrifice to thee;
what I have vowed I will pay.
Deliverance belongs to the LORD!"
 וַאֲנִי בְּקֹול תֹּודָה אֶזְבְּחָה־לָּךְ
אֲשֶׁר נָדַרְתִּי אֲשַׁלֵּמָה יְשׁוּעָתָה לַיהוָה׃ ס
10 And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה לַדָּג וַיָּקֵא אֶת־יֹונָה אֶל־הַיַּבָּשָׁה׃ ף
