        From Inside The Fish

        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.
