1 Then Ionah prayed vnto the Lord his God, out of the fishes belly,
2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction vnto the Lord, and hee heard mee; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voyce.
3 For thou hadst cast mee into the deepe, in the middest of the Seas, and the floods compassed me about: all thy billowes & thy waues passed ouer me.
4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will looke againe toward thy holy Temple.
5 The waters compassed mee about euen to the soule; the depth closed mee round about; the weedes were wrapt about my head.
6 I went downe to the bottomes of the mountaines: the earth with her barres was about me for euer: yet hast thou brought vp my life from corruption, O Lord my God.
7 When my soule fainted within mee, I remembred the Lord, and my prayer came in vnto thee, into thine holy Temple.
8 They that obserue lying vanities, forsake their owne mercy.
9 But I wil sacrifice vnto thee with the voice of thanksgiuing, I will pay that that I haue vowed: saluation is of the Lord.
10 ¶ And the Lord spake vnto the fish, and it vomited out Ionah vpon the drie land.
