Chapter 2

1

Then Jonah prayed unto Yahweh his Elohim out of the fish's belly.

2

And he said, I called by reason of mine affliction unto Yahweh, And he answered me; Out of the belly of Sheol cried I, And thou heardest my voice.

3

For thou didst cast me into the depth, in the heart of the seas, And the flood was round about me; All thy waves and thy billows passed over me.

4

And I said, I am cast out from before thine eyes; Yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.

5

The waters compassed me about, even to the soul; The deep was round about me; The weeds were wrapped about my head.

6

I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; The earth with its bars closed upon me for ever: Yet hast thou brought up my life from the pit, O Yahweh my Elohim.

7

When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Yahweh; And my prayer came in unto thee, into thy holy temple.

8

They that regard lying vanities Forsake their own mercy.

9

But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation is of Yahweh.

10

And Yahweh spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
