Jonah 2:4

2:4 I am driven away from your sight. For the prophet, the ultimate horror of death was separation from the presence of the Lord (Ps. 88:4, 5, 10–12).

Yet I shall again look upon your holy temple. The Jerusalem temple was the earthly location of the divine presence. Jonah longed for the communion with God that the temple afforded. The prophet now laments losing the same divine presence that he earlier had sought to escape (1:3, 10).
