You heard my voice.
3 "For You had cast R31 me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the current engulfed F12 me.
All Your breakers R32 and billows passed over me.
4 "So I said, `I have been expelled R33 from Your F13 sight.
Nevertheless I will look again toward R34 Your holy temple.'
5 "Water R35 encompassed me to the point F14 of death.
The great deep R36 engulfed F15 me,
Weeds were wrapped around my head.
6 "I descended R37 to the roots of the mountains.
The earth with its bars R38 was around me forever,
But You have brought R39 up my life from the F16 pit, O LORD my God.
7 "While I F17 was fainting R40 away,
I remembered R41 the LORD,
And my prayer R42 came to You,
Into Your R43 holy temple.
8 "Those who regard R44 vain F18 idols
Forsake their faithfulness,
9 But I will sacrifice R45 to You
With the voice of thanksgiving.
That which I have vowed I will pay. R46
Salvation R47 is from the LORD."
10 Then the LORD commanded the fish, R48 and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.
