2 saying, 1"I called out to the LORD, out of my distress, and he answered me; 2out of the belly of Sheol I cried, 3and you heard my voice.
3 4For you cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas, and the flood surrounded me; 5all your waves and your billows passed over me.
4 6Then I said, 'I am driven away from your sight; 7yet I shall again look upon your holy temple.'
5 8The waters closed in over me 9to take my life; the deep surrounded me; weeds were wrapped about my head
6 at the roots of the mountains. I went down to the land whose bars closed upon me forever; yet you brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God.
7 When my life was fainting away, I remembered the LORD, 10and my prayer came to you, into your holy temple.
8 11Those who pay regard to vain idols 12forsake their hope of steadfast love.
9 13But I with the voice of thanksgiving will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I will pay. 14Salvation belongs to the LORD!"
