|Jonah 2 JPS Tanakh 1917|| |
Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord
his God out of the fish’s belly.
And he said:
I called out of mine affliction
Unto the Lord, and He answered me;
Out of the belly of the nether-world cried I,
And Thou heardest my voice.
For Thou didst cast me into the depth,
In the heart of the seas,
And the flood was round about me;
All Thy waves and Thy billows
Passed over me.
And I said: ‘I am cast out
From before Thine eyes’;
Yet I will look again
Toward Thy holy temple.
The waters compassed me about, even to the soul;
The deep was round about me;
The weeds were wrapped about my head.
I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; The earth with her bars closed upon me for ever;
Yet hast Thou brought up my life from the pit,
O Lord my God.
When my soul fainted within me,
I remembered the Lord;
And my prayer came in unto Thee,
Into Thy holy temple.
They that regard lying vanities
Forsake their own mercy.
But I will sacrifice unto Thee
With the voice of thanksgiving;
That which I have vowed I will pay.
Salvation is of the Lord.
11And the Lord spoke unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
