Jonah 2
New Heart English Bible
1Then Jonah prayed to the LORD, his God, out of the fish's belly.

2He said, "I called because of my affliction to the LORD. He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried. You heard my voice.

3For you threw me into the depths, in the heart of the seas. The flood was all around me. All your breakers and waves passed over me.

4I said, 'I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.'

5The waters surrounded me, threatening my life. The deep was around me. The weeds were wrapped around my head.

6I went down to the bottoms of the mountains. The earth barred me in forever: yet have you brought up my life from the pit, LORD my God.

7"When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the LORD. My prayer came in to you, into your holy temple.

8Those who regard worthless things forsake their faithfulness.

9But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving. I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation belongs to the LORD."

10The LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah on the dry land.
