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.
