Jonah's Prayer

1 aThen Jonah prayed to the LORD his God 1from the stomach of the fish, 2 and he said, "I 2called out of my distress to the LORD, And He answered me. I cried for help from the bdepth of 3Sheol ; You heard my voice. 3 "For You had 4cast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, And the current cengulfed me. All Your 5breakers and billows passed over me. 4 "So I said, 'I have been 6expelled from dYour sight. Nevertheless I will look again 7toward Your holy temple.' 5 "8Water encompassed me to the epoint of death. The great 9deep fengulfed me, Weeds were wrapped around my head. 6 "I 10descended to the roots of the mountains. The earth with its 11bars was around me forever, But You have 12brought up my life from gthe pit, O LORD my God. 7 "While hI was 13fainting away, I 14remembered the LORD, And my 15prayer came to You, Into 16Your holy temple. 8 "Those who 17regard ivain idols Forsake their faithfulness, 9 But I will 18sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving. That which I have vowed I will 19pay. 20Salvation is from the LORD." 10 Then the LORD commanded the 21fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.
