While Jonah was in the stomach of the fish, he prayed to the Lord his God. Jonah said,

“I was in danger.
    So I called to the Lord,
    and he answered me.
I was about to die.
    So I cried to you,
    and you heard my voice.
You threw me into the sea.
    I went down, down into the deep sea.
The water was all around me.
    Your powerful waves flowed over me.
I said, ‘I was driven out of your presence.
    But I hope to see your Holy Temple again.’
The waters of the sea closed over me.
I was about to die.
The deep sea was all around me.
    Seaweed wrapped around my head.
I went down to where the mountains of the sea start to rise.
    I thought I was locked in this prison forever.
But you saved me from death,
    Lord my God.

“When my life had almost gone,
    I remembered the Lord.
Lord, I prayed to you.
    And you heard my prayers in your Holy Temple.

“People who worship useless idols
    give up their loyalty to you.
Lord, I will praise and thank you
    while I give sacrifices to you.
I will make promises to you.
    And I will do what I promise.
Salvation comes from the Lord!”

10 Then the Lord spoke to the fish. And the fish spit Jonah out of its stomach onto the dry land.
