Jonah 2:3–6

2:3–6 These verses contain a vivid recollection of the near-death crisis, its causes, and results. Jonah’s plight was the Lord’s judgment on his disobedience. The brush with a watery grave is presented with graphic imagery: entanglement in seaweed, the silence of deep water, and waves swelling high above the victim.
