2:1  Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the stomach of the fish,

2:2  and he said, "I called out of my distress to the LORD, And He answered me I cried for help from the depth of Sheol; You heard my voice.

2:3  "For You had cast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, And the current engulfed me All Your breakers and billows passed over me.

2:4  "So I said, ' You have expelled me from Your sight Nevertheless I will look again toward Your holy temple.'

2:5  " Water encompassed me to the point of death The great deep engulfed me, Weeds wrapped around my head.

2:6  "I descended to the roots of the mountains The earth with its bars surrounded me forever, But You have brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God.

2:7  "While I fainted away, I remembered the LORD, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple.

2:8  "Those who regard vain idols Forsake their faithfulness,

2:9  But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving That which I have vowed I will pay Salvation comes from the LORD."

2:10  Then the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.
