Book 32 Chapter 2

Select Chapter:

1 2 3 4

1

Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly,

2

And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and you heard my voice.

3

For you had cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me.

4

Then I said, I am cast out of your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.

5

The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

6

I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.

7

When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto you, into yours holy temple.

8

They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

9

But I will sacrifice unto you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.

10

And the LORD spoke unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
