Chapter 2

1

 Then Jonah prayed to Yahweh, his God, out of the fish's belly.

2

 He said, 'I called because of my affliction to Yahweh. He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried. You heard my voice.

3

 For you threw me into the depths, In the heart of the seas. The flood was all around me. All your waves and your billows passed over me.

4

 I said, 'I have been banished from your sight; Yet I will look again toward your holy temple.'

5

 The waters surrounded me, Even to the soul. The deep was around me. The weeds were wrapped around my head.

6

 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains. The earth barred me in forever: Yet have you brought up my life from the pit, Yahweh my God.

7

 'When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Yahweh. My prayer came in to you, into your holy temple.

8

 Those who regard lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

9

 But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving. I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation belongs to Yahweh.'

10

 Yahweh spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah on the dry land.
