Chapter 2

1


 

  Now the Lord prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonas: and Jonas was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.  

 

 


2


 

  And Jonas prayed to the Lord his God out of the belly of the fish.  

 

 


3


 

  And he said: I cried out of my affliction to the Lord, and he heard me: I cried out of the belly of hell, and thou hast heard my voice.  

 

 


4


 

  And thou hast cast me forth into the deep in the heart of the sea, and a flood hath compassed me: all thy billows, and thy waves have passed over me.  

 

 


5


 

  And I said: I am cast away out of the sight of thy eyes: but yet I shall see thy holy temple again.  

 

 


6


 

  The waters compassed me about even to the soul: the deep hath closed me round about, the sea hath covered my head.  

 

 


7


 

  I went down to the lowest parts of the mountains: the bars of the earth have shut me up for ever: and thou wilt bring up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.  

 

 


8


 

  When my soul was in distress within me, I remembered the Lord: that my prayer may come to thee, unto thy holy temple.  

 

 


9


 

  They that are vain observe vanities, forsake their own mercy.  

 

 


10


 

  But I with the voice of praise will sacrifice to thee: I will pay whatsoever I have vowed for my salvation to the Lord.  

 

 


11


 

  And the Lord spoke to the fish: and it vomited out Jonas upon the dry land.
