Jonah 2 (WEBP)

[1] Then Jonah prayed to Yahweh, his God, out of the fish’s belly.
[2] He said, “I called because of my affliction to Yahweh. He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol° I cried. You heard my voice.
[3] For you threw me into the depths, in the heart of the seas. The flood was all around me. All your waves and your billows passed over me.
[4] I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’
[5] The waters surrounded me, even to the soul. The deep was around me. The weeds were wrapped around my head.
[6] I went down to the bottoms of the mountains. The earth barred me in forever; yet you have brought my life up from the pit, Yahweh my God.
[7] “When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Yahweh. My prayer came in to you, into your holy temple.
[8] Those who regard vain idols forsake their own mercy.
[9] But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving. I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation belongs to Yahweh.”
[10] Then Yahweh spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah on the dry land.

Jonah 2 (KJVS)

[1] Then Jonah H3124 prayed H6419 (8691) unto the LORD H3068 his God H430 out of the fish’s H1710 belly H4578,
[2] And said H559 (8799), I cried H7121 (8804) by reason of mine affliction H6869 unto the LORD H3068, and he heard H6030 (8799) me; out of the belly H990 of hell H7585 cried H7768 (8765) I, [and] thou heardest H8085 (8804) my voice H6963.
[3] For thou hadst cast H7993 (8686) me into the deep H4688, in the midst H3824 of the seas H3220; and the floods H5104 compassed H5437 (8779) me about: all thy billows H4867 and thy waves H1530 passed over H5674 (8804) me.
[4] Then I said H559 (8804), I am cast out H1644 (8738) of thy sight H5869; yet I will look H5027 (8687) again H3254 (8686) toward thy holy H6944 temple H1964.
[5] The waters H4325 compassed me about H661 (8804), [even] to the soul H5315: the depth H8415 closed me round about H5437 (8779), the weeds H5488 were wrapped about H2280 (8803) my head H7218.
[6] I went down H3381 (8804) to the bottoms H7095 of the mountains H2022; the earth H776 with her bars H1280 [was] about me for ever H5769: yet hast thou brought up H5927 (8686) my life H2416 from corruption H7845, O LORD H3068 my God H430.
[7] When my soul H5315 fainted H5848 (8692) within me I remembered H2142 (8804) the LORD H3068: and my prayer H8605 came in H935 (8799) unto thee, into thine holy H6944 temple H1964.
[8] They that observe H8104 (8764) lying H7723 vanities H1892 forsake H5800 (8799) their own mercy H2617.
[9] But I will sacrifice H2076 (8799) unto thee with the voice H6963 of thanksgiving H8426; I will pay H7999 (8762) [that] that I have vowed H5087 (8804). Salvation H3444 [is] of the LORD H3068.
[10] And the LORD H3068 spake H559 (8799) unto the fish H1709, and it vomited out H6958 (8686) Jonah H3124 upon the dry H3004 [land].

Young’s Literal Translation

Jonah 2 (YLT)

[1] And Jonah prayeth unto Jehovah his God from the bowels of the fish.
[2] And he saith: I called, because of my distress, to Jehovah, And He doth answer me, From the belly of sheol I have cried, Thou hast heard my voice.
[3] When Thou dost cast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, Then the flood doth compass me, All Thy breakers and Thy billows have passed over me.
[4] And I-I said: I have been cast out from before Thine eyes, (Yet I add to look unto Thy holy temple!)
[5] Compassed me have waters unto the soul, The deep doth compass me, The weed is bound to my head.
[6] To the cuttings of mountains I have come down, The earth, her bars are behind me to the age. And Thou bringest up from the pit my life, O Jehovah my God.
[7] In the feebleness within me of my soul Jehovah I have remembered, And come in unto Thee doth my prayer, Unto Thy holy temple.
[8] Those observing lying vanities their own mercy forsake.
[9] And I-with a voice of thanksgiving- I sacrifice to Thee, That which I have vowed I complete, Salvation is of Jehovah.
[10] And Jehovah saith to the fish, and it vomiteth out Jonah on the dry land.
