And Jonah prayeth unto Jehovah his God from the bowels of the fish.
Jonah 2:1 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Then Jonah prayed - out of the fish's belly - This verse makes the first of the second chapter in the Hebrew text.
It may be asked, "How could Jonah either pray or breathe in the stomach of the fish?" Very easily, if God so willed it. And let the reader keep this constantly in view; the whole is a miracle, from Jonah's being swallowed by the fish till he was cast ashore by the same animal. It was God that had prepared the great fish. It was the Lord that spake to the fish, and caused it to vomit Jonah upon the dry land. All is miracle.
