The Prophesy of Jonas
Jonas is swallowed up by a great fish: he prayeth with confidence in God; and the fish casteth him out on the dry land.
|Now the Lord prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonas: and Jonas was in the belly of a fish for three days and three nights.
|And Jonas prayed to the Lord, his God, out of the belly of the fish.
|And he said: I cried out of my affliction to the Lord, and he heard me: I cried out of the belly of hell, and thou hast heard my voice.
|And thou hast cast me forth into the deep, in the heart of the sea, and a flood hast compassed me: all thy billows, and thy waves have passed over me.
|And I said: I am cast away out of the sight of thy eyes: but yet I shall see the holy temple again.
|The waters compassed me about even to the soul: the deep hath closed me round about, the sea hath covered my head.
|I went down to the lowest parts of the mountains: the bars of the earth have shut me up for ever: and thou wilt bring up my life from corruption, O Lord, my God.
|When my soul was in distress within me, I remembered the Lord: that my prayer may come to thee, unto the holy temple.
|They that in vain observe vanities, forsake their own mercy.
|But I with the voice of praise will sacrifice to thee: I will pay whatsoever I have vowed for my salvation to the Lord.
|And the Lord spoke to the fish: and it vomited out Jonas upon the dry land.
