Chapter 2

1

 And Jonah prayeth unto Jehovah his God from the bowels of the fish.

2

 And he saith: I called, because of my distress, to Jehovah, And He doth answer me, From the belly of sheol I have cried, Thou hast heard my voice.

3

 When Thou dost cast me [into] the deep, Into the heart of the seas, Then the flood doth compass me, All Thy breakers and Thy billows have passed over me.

4

 And I -- I said: I have been cast out from before Thine eyes, (Yet I add to look unto Thy holy temple!)

5

 Compassed me have waters unto the soul, The deep doth compass me, The weed is bound to my head.

6

 To the cuttings of mountains I have come down, The earth, her bars [are] behind me to the age. And Thou bringest up from the pit my life, O Jehovah my God.

7

 In the feebleness within me of my soul Jehovah I have remembered, And come in unto Thee doth my prayer, Unto Thy holy temple.

8

 Those observing lying vanities their own mercy forsake.

9

 And I -- with a voice of thanksgiving -- I sacrifice to Thee, That which I have vowed I complete, Salvation [is] of Jehovah.

10

 And Jehovah saith to the fish, and it vomiteth out Jonah on the dry land.
