Then Jonah prayed to Jehovah his God from the stomach of the fish,
And he said,
out because of my distress
To Jehovah, and He answered me;
From the belly of 1bSheol
I cried out for help;
You heard my voice.
You flung me into the adepths
, into the heart of the sea,
And the flood surrounded me; bAll
Your breakers and Your billows
Passed over me.
Water encompassed me, even
to my soul;
The deep surrounded me;
Seaweed was wrapped about my head.
To the bottom of the sea
mountains I went down;
The earth with
its bars was around me forever.
Then You ahave
brought up my life from the 1pit
O Jehovah my God.
When my soul fainted within me,
I remembered Jehovah,
And my prayer acame
In Your holy temple.
Those who regard empty vanities
Forsake the lovingkindness to them;
But I will asacrifice
With the voice of thanksgiving;
That which I have vowed I will fully pay. bSalvation
is of Jehovah.
And Jehovah spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out onto the dry land.
