Bible Commentary for Jonah 2:3

Wesley's Notes for Jonah 2:3


2:2 Affliction - Straits with which he was encompassed, his body and mind being both shut up, the one by the monstrous dungeon of the fish's belly, and the other by the terrors of the Almighty. Heardest my voice - Of which undoubtedly God gave him an assurance in his own soul.

2:4 I said - With myself, I thought in the midst of my fears and sufferings. Cast out - Cut off from all hope of life, and as it were forgotten of God. I will look - Toward heaven.

2:5 The weeds - It seems to mean, my case was as hopeless as that of a man wrapt about with weeds in the depth of the sea.


Discussion for Jonah 2:3

  • Nicola on Jonah 2:3
    Definitely God is always with us and nothing is too hard for Him. We may go through the waters, even the waters may cover us but because He is with us, we will not be overwhelmed or drowned. I am excited about our awesome n mighty God. Although sin pushes us into the deep. He does not forsake us. Yea, I bless God.
