(Scripture in Black, My Comments in Purple, Other Comments in Blue)

Jonah prays to the Lord, and the fish vomits him out on dry ground.

1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly,

2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD,
and he heard me;
out of the belly of aSHEOL cried I,
and thou heardest my voice.


3 For thou hadst cast me into the deep,
in the midst of the seas;
and the floods compassed me about:
all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.

4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight;
yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.

5 The waters compassed me about,
even to the soul:
the depth closed me round about,
the weeds were wrapped about my head.

6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains;
the earth with her bars was about me for ever:
yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption,
O LORD my God.

7 When my soul fainted within me
I remembered the LORD:
and my prayer came in unto thee,
into thine holy temple.

8 They that observe lying vanities
forsake their own mercy.

9 But I will sacrifice unto thee
with the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay that
that I have vowed.
Salvation is of the LORD.

10 And the LORD spake unto the fish,
and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
