1Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly. 2And he said:
  “I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction,
   And He answered me.
  “Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
   And You heard my voice.
   3For You cast me into the deep,
   Into the heart of the seas,
   And the floods surrounded me;
   All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.
   4Then I said, ‘I have been cast out of Your sight;
   Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.’
   5The waters surrounded me, even to my soul;
   The deep closed around me;
   Weeds were wrapped around my head.
   6I went down to the moorings of the mountains;
   The earth with its bars closed behind me forever;
   Yet You have brought up my life from the pit,
   O Lord, my God.
  7“When my soul fainted within me,
   I remembered the Lord;
   And my prayer went up to You,
   Into Your holy temple.
  8“Those who regard worthless idols
   Forsake their own Mercy.
   9But I will sacrifice to You
   With the voice of thanksgiving;
   I will pay what I have vowed.
   Salvation is of the Lord.”
10So the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
