Chapter 2

Jonah prays to the Lord, and the fish vomits him out on dry ground.

1 Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish’s belly,

2 And said, I cried by reason of mine aaffliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of bhell 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 atemple.

5 The waters compassed me about, aeven 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 hast thou abrought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.

7 When my soul fainted within me I aremembered the Lord: and my bprayer came in unto thee, into thine holy ctemple.

8 They that observe alying vanities forsake their own mercy.

9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have avowed. bSalvation is of the Lord.

10 And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
