"Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God's love for them.
King James Bible
They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
American Standard Version
They that regard lying vanities Forsake their own mercy.
Young's Literal Translation
Those observing lying vanities their own mercy forsake.
Jonah 2:8 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They that observe lying vanities - They that trust in idols, follow vain predictions, permit themselves to be influenced with foolish fears, so as to induce them to leave the path of obvious duty, forsake their own mercy. In leaving that God who is the Fountain of mercy, they abandon that measure of mercy which he had treasured up for them.
