The prayer of Jonah.
Jonah 2:1 Then Ionah prayed vnto the LORD his God, out of the fishes belly, Jonah 2:2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction vnto the LORD, and hee heard mee; out of the belly of hell cried I, [and] thou heardest my voyce. Jonah 2:3 For thou hadst cast mee into the deepe, in the middest of the Seas, and the floods compassed me about: all thy billowes & thy waues passed ouer me. Jonah 2:4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will looke againe toward thy holy Temple. Jonah 2:5 The waters compassed mee about euen to the soule; the depth closed mee round about; the weedes were wrapt about my head. Jonah 2:6 I went downe to the bottomes of the mountaines: the earth with her barres [was] about me for euer: yet hast thou brought vp my life from corruption, O LORD my God. Jonah 2:7 When my soule fainted within mee, I remembred the LORD, and my prayer came in vnto thee, into thine holy Temple. Jonah 2:8 They that obserue lying vanities, forsake their owne mercy. Jonah 2:9 But I wil sacrifice vnto thee with the voice of thanksgiuing, I will pay that that I haue vowed: saluation [is] of the LORD.

Jonah 2:10 And the LORD spake vnto the fish, and it vomited out Ionah vpon the drie land.
