      Bible Text: Jonah 1-2 |

      Jonah's Prayer

      Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish, saying,

      “I called out to the Lord, out of my distress,
          and he answered me;
      out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
          and you heard my voice.
      For you cast me into the deep,
          into the heart of the seas,
          and the flood surrounded me;
      all your waves and your billows
          passed over me.
      Then I said, ‘I am driven away
          from your sight;
      yet I shall again look
          upon your holy temple.’
      The waters closed in over me to take my life;
          the deep surrounded me;
      weeds were wrapped about my head
          at the roots of the mountains.
      I went down to the land
          whose bars closed upon me forever;
      yet you brought up my life from the pit,
          Lord my God.
      When my life was fainting away,
          I remembered the Lord,
      and my prayer came to you,
          into your holy temple.
      Those who pay regard to vain idols
          forsake their hope of steadfast love.
      But I with the voice of thanksgiving
          will sacrifice to you;
      what I have vowed I will pay.
          Salvation belongs to the Lord!”

      10 And the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out upon the dry land.
