Jonah 2:1-7 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly, 2 and said: "I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and He heard me. Out of the belly of hell cried I, and Thou heardest my voice. 3 For Thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas, and the floods compassed me about; all Thy billows and Thy waves passed over me. 4 Then I said, `I am cast out of Thy sight; yet I will look again toward Thy holy temple.' 5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul; the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever; yet hast Thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. 7 "When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD; and my prayer came in unto Thee, into Thine holy temple.
