Yonah  2 : 1 - 10

2 Then Yoʹnah prayed to Yahvah his God from the belly of the fish, 2 and he said:

“Out of my distress I called out to Yahvah, and he answered me.

Out of the depths of the Grave I cried for help.

You heard my voice.

 3 When you threw me to the depths, into the heart of the open sea,

Then the currents engulfed me.

All your breakers and waves swept over me.

 4 And I said, ‘I have been driven away from your sight!

How will I gaze again upon your holy temple?’

 5 Waters engulfed me and threatened my life;

The watery deep closed in on me.

Weeds were wrapped around my head.

 6 To the bottoms of the mountains I sank down.

The bars of the earth were closing upon me forever.

But out of the pit you brought up my life, O Yahvah my God.

 7 When my life was ebbing away, Yahvah was the One whom I remembered.

Then my prayer came in to you, into your holy temple.

 8 Those who are devoted to the worthless idols forsake their source of loyal love.

 9 But as for me, with the voice of thanksgiving I will sacrifice to you.

What I have vowed, I will pay.

Salvation is from Yahvah.”

10 In time Yahvah commanded the fish, and it vomited Yoʹnah out onto the dry land.
