Jonah 2

Jonah 2

1Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly. 2And he said:
“I #1 Sam. 30:6; Ps. 120:1; Lam. 3:55cried out to the Lord because of my affliction,
#Ps. 65:2And He answered me.
“Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
And You heard my voice.
3#Ps. 88:6For You cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the floods surrounded me;
#Ps. 42:7All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.
4#Ps. 31:22; Jer. 7:15Then I said, ‘I have been cast out of Your sight;
Yet I will look again #1 Kin. 8:38; 2 Chr. 6:38; Ps. 5:7toward Your holy temple.’
5The #Ps. 69:1; Lam. 3:54waters surrounded me, even to my soul;
The deep closed around me;
Weeds were wrapped around my head.
6I went down to the moorings of the mountains;
The earth with its bars closed behind me forever;
Yet You have brought up my #Job 33:28; (Ps. 16:10; Is. 38:17)life from the pit,
O Lord, my God.
7“When my soul fainted within me,
I remembered the Lord;
#2 Chr. 30:27; Ps. 18:6And my prayer went up to You,
Into Your holy temple.
8“Those who regard #2 Kin. 17:15; Ps. 31:6; Jer. 10:8worthless idols
Forsake their own Mercy.
9But I will #Ps. 50:14, 23; Jer. 33:11; Hos. 14:2sacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have #Job 22:27; (Eccl. 5:4, 5)vowed.
#Ps. 3:8; (Is. 45:17)Salvation is of the #(Jer. 3:23)Lord.”
10So the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
