2 From inside the fish, Jonah prayed to the Lord his God:
2 When I was in trouble, Lord, I prayed to you, and you listened to me. From deep in the world of the dead, I begged for your help, and you answered my prayer.
3 You threw me down to the bottom of the sea. The water was churning all around; I was completely covered by your mighty waves. 4 I thought I was swept away from your sight, never again to see your holy temple.
5 I was almost drowned by the swirling waters that surrounded me. Seaweed had wrapped around my head. 6 I had sunk down below the underwater mountains; I knew that forever, I would be a prisoner there.
But, you, Lord God, rescued me from that pit. 7 When my life was slipping away, I remembered you— and in your holy temple you heard my prayer.
8 All who worship worthless idols turn from the God who offers them mercy. 9 But with shouts of praise, I will offer a sacrifice to you, my Lord. I will keep my promise, because you are the one with power to save.
10 The Lord commanded the fish to vomit up Jonah on the shore. And it did.
