Chapter 2

1

 

  Then Jonah prayed to Yahweh, his God, out of the fish's belly.  

 

 


2

 

  He said, 'I called because of my affliction to Yahweh. He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried. You heard my voice.  

 

 


3

 

  For you threw me into the depths, In the heart of the seas. The flood was all around me. All your waves and your billows passed over me.  

 

 


4

 

  I said, 'I have been banished from your sight; Yet I will look again toward your holy temple.'  

 

 


5

 

  The waters surrounded me, Even to the soul. The deep was around me. The weeds were wrapped around my head.  

 

 


6

 

  I went down to the bottoms of the mountains. The earth barred me in forever: Yet have you brought up my life from the pit, Yahweh my God.  

 

 


7

 

  'When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Yahweh. My prayer came in to you, into your holy temple.  

 

 


8

 

  Those who regard lying vanities forsake their own mercy.  

 

 


9

 

  But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving. I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation belongs to Yahweh.'  

 

 


10

 

  Yahweh spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah on the dry land.
