Jonah 2:2-9 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
2 (2-3) And he said: I cried out of my affliction to the Lord, and he heard me: I cried out of the belly of hell, and thou hast heard my voice. 3 (2-4) And thou hast cast me forth into the deep, in the heart of the sea, and a flood hast compassed me: all thy billows, and thy waves have passed over me. 4 (2-5) And I said: I am cast away out of the sight of thy eyes: but yet I shall see the holy temple again. 5 (2-6) The waters compassed me about even to the soul: the deep hath closed me round about, the sea hath covered my head. 6 (2-7) I went down to the lowest parts of the mountains: the bars of the earth have shut me up for ever: and thou wilt bring up my life from corruption, O Lord, my God. 7 (2-8) When my soul was in distress within me, I remembered the Lord: that my prayer may come to thee, unto the holy temple. 8 (2-9) They that in vain observe vanities, forsake their own mercy. 9 (2-10) But I with the voice of praise will sacrifice to thee: I will pay whatsoever I have vowed for my salvation to the Lord.
