Jonah 2

(2:1-2) Jonah prays to God from his fish-belly hell.

(2:1) "Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly."

(2:2) "Out of the belly of hell cried I."

(2:3) "For thou hadst cast me into the deep."
Who cast Jonah into the sea?

2:1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly,
2:2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.
2:3 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.
2:4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.
2:5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
2:6 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.
2:7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.
2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
2:9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD. (2:10) "The LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land."
2:10 And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
