1And Jonah prayed unto Jehovah his God out of the fish's belly;
2and he said: I cried by reason of my distress unto Jehovah, and he answered me; Out of the belly of Sheol cried I: thou heardest my voice.
3For thou didst cast me into the depth, into the heart of the seas, And the flood was round about me: All thy breakers and thy billows are gone over me.
4And I said, I am cast out from before thine eyes, Yet will I look again toward thy holy temple.
5The waters encompassed me, to the soul: The deep was round about me, The weeds were wrapped about my head.
6I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; The bars of the earth closed upon me for ever: But thou hast brought up my life from the pit, O Jehovah my God.
7When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Jehovah; And my prayer came in unto thee, Into thy holy temple.
8They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
9But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation is of Jehovah.
10And Jehovah commanded the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
