Jonah
Chapter 2





Jonah 2:1

Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly,

Jonah 2:2

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.

Jonah 2:3

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.

Jonah 2:4

Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.

Jonah 2:5

The waters compassed me about, [even] to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

Jonah 2:6

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.

Jonah 2:7

When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.

Jonah 2:8

They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

Jonah 2:9

But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay [that] that I have vowed. Salvation [is] of the LORD.

Jonah 2:10

And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry [land].
