|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.||belly of hell|
|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.||the soul weeds|
|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.||bottoms of the mountains corruption|
|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.|
But I will sacrifice unto thee
with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed.
Salvation is of the LORD.
|I have vowed|
And the LORD spake
unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
