Jonah’s Prayer
1Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from inside # Lit from the belly of the fish: #Jb 13:15Ps 130:1-2Lm 3:53-56
2I called to the Lord in my distress, #1Sm 30:6Ps 18:4-6|NoBook| 22:24|NoBook| 120:1
and He answered me.
I cried out for help in the belly of Sheol; #Ps 18:5-6|NoBook| 86:1388:1-7Is 28:15|NoBook| 38:18
You heard my voice. #Ps 34:7
3You threw me into the depths, #Ps 69:1-2Lm 3:54
into the heart of the seas, #Neh 9:11
and the current # Lit river overcame me.
All Your breakers and Your billows swept over me. #Ps 42:7
4But I said: I have been banished #Lv 21:7
from Your sight, #Ps 31:22-23Jr 7:15
yet I will look once more # LXX reads said: Indeed, will I look . . . ?
toward Your holy temple. #1Kg 8:382Ch 6:38Ps 5:7|NoBook| 138:2
5The waters engulfed me up to the neck; # Or me, threatening my life #Ps 69:1-2|NoBook| 105:18Pr 23:2Lm 3:54
the watery depths overcame me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head. #Ps 18:4-5
6I sank to the foundations of the mountains; #Ps 116:3
the earth with its prison bars closed behind me forever! #Jb 38:10Ps 9:13Is 38:10Mt 16:18
But You raised my life #Jb 33:28Ps 16:10|NoBook| 30:3Is 38:17 from the Pit, Lord my God! #Ps 30:3|NoBook| 86:13
7As my life was fading away, #Ps 142:3
I remembered Yahweh. #2Sm 14:11Ps 77:10-11|NoBook| 143:5
My prayer came to You, #2Ch 30:27Ps 18:6
to Your holy temple. #Ps 11:4|NoBook| 65:4|NoBook| 88:2Mc 1:2Hab 2:20
8Those who cling to worthless idols #2Kg 17:15Ps 31:6Jr 16:18
forsake faithful love, #Ps 31:6
9but as for me, I will sacrifice #Ps 50:14Jr 33:11Hs 14:2 to You
with a voice of thanksgiving. #Ps 26:7
I will fulfill #Jb 22:27Ps 22:25|NoBook| 116:14Ec 5:4-5 what I have vowed.
Salvation # Or Deliverance is from the Lord! #Ps 3:8Is 12:2|NoBook| 45:17Rv 7:10
10Then the Lord commanded the fish, #Jnh 1:17 and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
