Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God afrom the stomach of the fish,
and he said, "I acalled out of my distress to the Lord, And He answered me. I cried for help from the depth of bSheol; You heard my voice.
"For You had acast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, And the current engulfed me. All Your bbreakers and billows passed over me.
"So I said, 'I have been aexpelled from Your sight. Nevertheless I will look again btoward Your holy temple.'
"aWater encompassed me to the point of death. The great bdeep engulfed me, Weeds were wrapped around my head.
"I adescended to the roots of the mountains. The earth with its bbars was around me forever, But You have cbrought up my life from the pit, O Lord my God.
"While I was afainting away, I bremembered the Lord, And my cprayer came to You, Into dYour holy temple.
"Those who aregard vain idols Forsake their faithfulness,
But I will asacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving. That which I have vowed I will bpay. cSalvation is from the Lord."
Then the Lord commanded the afish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.
