1 Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish’s belly,
2 And said, I cried by reason of mine a unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of b cried I, and thou heardest my voice.
3 For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.
4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy a.
5 The waters compassed me about, a: 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 hast thou a my life from corruption, O Lord my God.
7 When my soul fainted within me I a the Lord: and my b came in unto thee, into thine holy c.
8 They that observe a vanities forsake their own mercy.
9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have a. b is of the Lord.
10 ¶And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
