Jonah: 2

Jonah's prayer.  Jon.2.1-10

1Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the belly of the fish, 2saying,

"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.
3For 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.
4Then I said, 'I am cast out
from thy presence;
how shall I again look
upon thy holy temple?'
5The waters closed over me,
the deep was round me;
weeds are wrapped about my head
6at 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.
7When my soul fainted within me,
I remembered the LORD;
and my prayer came to thee,
into thy holy temple.
8Those who pay regard to vain idols
forsake their true loyalty.
9But I with the voice of thanksgiving
will sacrifice to thee;
what I have vowed I will pay.
Deliverance belongs to the LORD!" 10And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
