1
Then Ionah prayed vnto the Lorde his God out of the fishes belly,
2
And said, I cryed in mine affliction vnto the Lorde, and he heard me: out of the bellie of hell cryed I, and thou heardest my voyce.
3
For thou haddest cast me into the bottome in the middes of the sea, and the floods compassed me about: all thy surges, and all thy waues passed ouer me.
4
Then I saide, I am cast away out of thy sight: yet will I looke againe towarde thine holy Temple.
5
The waters compassed me about vnto the soule: the depth closed me rounde about, and the weedes were wrapt about mine head.
6
I went downe to the bottome of the moutaines: the earth with her barres was about me for euer, yet hast thou brought vp my life from the pit, O Lorde my God.
7
When my soule fainted within me, I remembred the Lorde: and my prayer came vnto thee, into thine holy Temple.
8
They that waite vpon lying vanities, forsake their owne mercie.
9
But I will sacrifice vnto thee with the voice of thankesgiuing, and will pay that that I haue vowed: saluation is of the Lorde.
10
And the Lorde spake vnto the fish, and it cast out Ionah vpon the dry lande.
