Jonah 2:1-7 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 Then Jonah prayed to his God from the belly of the fish. 2 He prayed: "In trouble, deep trouble, I prayed to God. He answered me. From the belly of the grave I cried, 'Help!' You heard my cry. 3 You threw me into ocean's depths, into a watery grave, With ocean waves, ocean breakers crashing over me. 4 I said, 'I've been thrown away, thrown out, out of your sight. I'll never again lay eyes on your Holy Temple.' 5 Ocean gripped me by the throat. The ancient Abyss grabbed me and held tight. My head was all tangled in seaweed 6 at the bottom of the sea where the mountains take root. I was as far down as a body can go, and the gates were slamming shut behind me forever - Yet you pulled me up from that grave alive, O God, my God! 7 When my life was slipping away, I remembered God, And my prayer got through to you, made it all the way to your Holy Temple.
