The prayer of Jonah.
Jonah 2:1 Then Ionah prayed vnto the Lorde his God out of the fishes belly, Jonah 2:2 And said, I cryed in mine affliction vnto the Lorde, and he heard me: out of the bellie of hell cryed I, and thou heardest my voyce. Jonah 2:3 For thou haddest cast me into the bottome in the middes of the sea, and the floods compassed me about: all thy surges, and all thy waues passed ouer me. Jonah 2:4 Then I saide, I am cast away out of thy sight: yet will I looke againe towarde thine holy Temple. Jonah 2:5 The waters compassed me about vnto the soule: the depth closed me rounde about, and the weedes were wrapt about mine head. Jonah 2:6 I went downe to the bottome of the moutaines: the earth with her barres was about me for euer, yet hast thou brought vp my life from the pit, O Lorde my God. Jonah 2:7 When my soule fainted within me, I remembred the Lorde: and my prayer came vnto thee, into thine holy Temple. Jonah 2:8 They that waite vpon lying vanities, forsake their owne mercie. Jonah 2:9 But I will sacrifice vnto thee with the voice of thankesgiuing, and will pay that that I haue vowed: saluation is of the Lorde.
He is delivered from the fish.
Jonah 2:10 And the Lorde spake vnto the fish, and it cast out Ionah vpon the dry lande.
