The prayer of Jonah.
Jonah 2:1 And Ionas prayed vnto the Lorde his God out of the fisshes belly. Jonah 2:2 And saide: In affliction I cryed vnto the Lorde, and he heard me: out of the belly of hell cryed I, and thou heardest my voyce. Jonah 2:3 Thou haddest cast me downe into the deepe, into the middest of the sea, and the floods compassed me about: all thy billowes and waues passed ouer me. Jonah 2:4 And I saide: I am cast away out of thy sight, yet wyll I loke againe toward thyne holy temple. Jonah 2:5 The waters compassed me euen vnto the soule, the deapth closed me on euery side, and the weedes were wrapt about my head. Jonah 2:6 I went downe to the bottome of the mountaines, the earth with her barres was about me for euer: yet hast thou brought vp my lyfe from corruption, O Lorde my God. Jonah 2:7 When my soule fainted within me, I remembred the Lorde, and my prayer came in vnto thee into thy holy temple. Jonah 2:8 They that holde vpon lying vanitie, forsake his mercie. Jonah 2:9 But I wyll sacrifice vnto thee with the voyce of thankesgeuing, and wyll pay that that I haue vowed: for saluation is of the Lorde.
He is delivered from the fish.
Jonah 2:10 And the Lorde spake vnto the fisshe, and it cast out Ionas vpon the drye lande.
