Jonah 2 (asv)

Jonah 2 (asv)

2:1Then Jonah prayed unto Jehovah his God out of the fish's belly. 2:2And he said, I called by reason of mine affliction unto Jehovah, And he answered me; Out of the belly of Sheol cried I, And thou heardest my voice. 2:3For thou didst cast me into the depth, in the heart of the seas, And the flood was round about me; All thy waves and thy billows passed over me. 2:4And I said, I am cast out from before thine eyes; Yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. 2:5The waters compassed me about, even to the soul; The deep was round about me; The weeds were wrapped about my head. 2:6I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; The earth with its bars closed upon me for ever: Yet hast thou brought up my life from the pit, O Jehovah my God. 2:7When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Jehovah; And my prayer came in unto thee, into thy holy temple.2:8They that regard lying vanities Forsake their own mercy. 2:9But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation is of Jehovah. 2:10And Jehovah spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
