Jonah 2:8

8 Those who worship false gods turn their backs on all God’s mercies.

Jonah 2:8 In-Context

6 I sank down to the very roots of the mountains. I was imprisoned in the earth, whose gates lock shut forever. But you, O LORD my God, snatched me from the jaws of death!
7 As my life was slipping away, I remembered the LORD . And my earnest prayer went out to you in your holy Temple.
8 Those who worship false gods turn their backs on all God’s mercies.
9 But I will offer sacrifices to you with songs of praise, and I will fulfill all my vows. For my salvation comes from the LORD alone.”
10 Then the LORD ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach.
