Jonah’s Prayer

1 IThen Jonah prayed to the LORD his God afrom the stomach of the fish, 2 and he said,
  “I acalled out of my distress to the LORD,
  And He answered me.
  I cried for help from the Idepth of bSheol;
  You heard my voice.
  3 “For You had acast me into the deep,
  Into the heart of the seas,
  And the current Iengulfed me.
  All Your bbreakers and billows passed over me.
  4 “So I said, ‘I have been aexpelled from IYour sight.
  Nevertheless I will look again btoward Your holy temple.’
  5aWater encompassed me to the Ipoint of death.
  The great bdeep IIengulfed me,
  Weeds were wrapped around my head.
  6 “I adescended to the roots of the mountains.
  The earth with its bbars [was] around me forever,
  But You have cbrought up my life from Ithe pit, O LORD my God.
  7 “While II was afainting away,
  I bremembered the LORD,
  And my cprayer came to You,
  Into dYour holy temple.
  8 “Those who aregard Ivain idols
  Forsake their faithfulness,
  9 But I will asacrifice to You
  With the voice of thanksgiving.
  That which I have vowed I will bpay.
  cSalvation is from the LORD.”

The prayer of Jonah.

1 ¶ Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly, 2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, [and] thou heardest my voice. 3 For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: 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 toward thy holy temple. 5 The waters compassed me about, [even] to the soul: the depth closed me round about, 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 in unto thee, into thine holy temple. 8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay [that] that I have vowed. Salvation [is] of the LORD.
