Jonah 2:8
Context
Jonah's Prayer

1Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God out of the fish's belly, 2And said, I cried by reason of my affliction to the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and you heard my voice. 3For you had cast me into the deep, in the middle of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me. 4Then I said, I am cast out of your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple. 5The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. 7When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in to you, into your holy temple. 8They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 9But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD. 10And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah on the dry land.
