Jonah 2Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

(1:17) Adonai prepared a huge fish to swallow Yonah; and Yonah was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights. (1) From the belly of the fish Yonah prayed to Adonai his God; (2) he said,

“Out of my distress I called to Adonai,
and he answered me;
from the belly of Sh’ol I cried,
and you heard my voice.
(3) For you threw me into the deep,
into the heart of the seas;
and the flood enveloped me;
all your surging waves passed over me.
(4) I thought, ‘I have been banished from your sight.’
But I will again look at your holy temple.
(5) The water surrounded me, threatened my life;
the deep closed over me, seaweed twined around my head.
(6) I was going down to the bottoms of the mountains,
to a land whose bars would close me in forever;
but you brought me up alive from the pit,
Adonai, my God!
(7) As my life was ebbing away,
I remembered Adonai;
and my prayer came in to you,
into your holy temple.

(8) “Those who worship vain idols
give up their source of mercy;
10 (9) but I, speaking my thanks aloud,
will sacrifice to you;
what I have vowed, I will pay.
Salvation comes from Adonai!”

11 (10) Then Adonai spoke to the fish, and it vomited Yonah out onto dry land.
