1(2:2)Then Yonah davened unto Hashem Elohav from out of the dag's belly, 2(2:3) And said, I cried by reason of mine tzoros unto Hashem, He heard me; out of the belly of Sheol cried I, and Thou heardest my voice. 3(2:4) For Thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the yamim (seas); and the current swirled about me; all Thy billows and Thy waves passed over me. 4(2:5) Then I said, I am cast out of Thy sight; yet I will look again toward Thy Heikhal Kodesh. 5(2:6) The mayim compassed me about, even to the nefesh; the depth closed me round about, the seaweed were wrapped about my head. 6(2:7) I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; ha'aretz with her bars closed behind me l'olam; yet hast Thou brought up my life from shachat (corruption; see Ps 16:10), Hashem Elohai. 7(2:8) When my nefesh fainted within me, I remembered Hashem; and my tefillah came unto Thee, into Thine Heikhal Kodesh. 8(2:9) They that observe lying vanities forsake their own chesed. 9(2:10) But I will sacrifice unto Thee with the voice of todah; I will pay that which I have vowed. Yeshuah (Salvation) is from Hashem. 10(2:11) And Hashem spoke unto HaDag (The Fish), and it vomited out Yonah upon the yabashah (dry land).
