Christian Standard Bible
2 Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish:(A)
2 I called to the Lord in my distress,(B)
and he answered me.
I cried out for help from deep inside[a] Sheol;(C)
you heard my voice.(D)
3 When you threw me into the depths,(E)
into the heart of the seas,(F)
the current[b] overcame me.
All your breakers and your billows swept over me.(G)
4 And I said, “I have been banished(H)
from your sight,(I)
yet I will look[c] once more
toward your holy temple.”(J)
5 The water engulfed me up to the neck;[d](K)
the watery depths overcame me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.(L)
6 I sank to the foundations of the mountains,(M)
the earth’s gates shut behind me forever!(N)
Then you raised my life(O) from the Pit, Lord my God!(P)
7 As my life was fading away,(Q)
I remembered the Lord,(R)
and my prayer came to you,(S)
to your holy temple.(T)
8 Those who cherish worthless idols(U)
abandon their faithful love,(V)
9 but as for me, I will sacrifice(W) to you
with a voice of thanksgiving.(X)
I will fulfill(Y) what I have vowed.
Salvation[e] belongs to the Lord.(Z)
10 Then the Lord commanded the fish,(AA) and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
3 The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time:(AB) 2 “Get up! Go to the great city of Nineveh(AC) and preach(AD) the message that I tell you.” 3 Jonah got up and went to Nineveh according to the Lord’s command.
