Prayer of prophet Jonah “quarantined” inside the belly of a giant fish

In my distress I called to the Lord and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help,   and you listened to my cry.  You hurled me into the depths,   into the very heart of the seas,  and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers  swept over me.

I said. “I have been banished from your sight. yet I will look again toward your holy temple. The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.

To the roots of the mountain, I sank down; the earth beneath barred me forever. But You, O Lord my God, brought my life up from the pit. “When my life was ebbing away. I remembered you. Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.

“Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say “Salvation comes from the Lord.”

And the Lord commanded the fish. and it vomited Jonah into dry land.
