1 Then prayed Jonah, unto Yahweh, his God, - out of the belly of the fish;
2 and said - I cried - out of my distress - unto Yahweh, and he answered me, - Out of the belly of hades, called I, Thou didst hear my voice. 3 For thou hast cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas, and, a flood, enveloped me, - All thy breakers and thy rolling waves, over me, passed. 4 And, I, said, I am driven out from before thine eyes, - Yet will I again have regard unto thy holy temple: 5 The waters, encompassed me, to the peril of my life, The roaring deep, enveloped me, - The sea-weed, was wrapped about my head: 6 To the roots of the mountains, went I down, As for the earth, her bars, were about me, age-abidingly, - Then didst thou bring up - out of the pit - my life, O Yahweh my God. 7 When my soul, darkened itself over me, Yahweh, I remembered, - and my prayer, came in unto thee, unto thy holy temple. 8 They who take heed to the vanities of falsehood, do, their own lovingkindness, forsake. 9 But, I, with the voice of praise, will sacrifice unto thee, What I have vowed, I will pay, - Salvation, belongeth to Yahweh!
10 So then Yahweh spake unto the fish, - and it vomited out Jonah, upon the dry land.
