Jonah 2

Jonah 2:1-10 NIV

From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God.  2 He said: "In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry.  3 You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me.  4 I said, 'I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.'  5 The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.  6 To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you, LORD my God, brought my life up from the pit.  7 "When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.  8 "Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God's love for them.  9 But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, 'Salvation comes from the LORD.'"  10 And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
