Jonah 2

Coverdale(i) 1 And Ionas prayed vnto the LORDE his God, out of the fysshes bely, 2 and sayed: In my trouble I called vnto ye LORDE, and he herde me: out off the bely off hell I cried, and thou herdest my voyce. 3 Thou haddest cast me downe depe in ye middest off the see, and the floude compased me aboute: yee all thy wawes and rowles of water went ouer me, 4 I thought that I had bene cast awaye out of thy sight: but I wil yet agayne loke towarde thy holy temple. 5 The waters compased me, euen to the very soule: the depe laye aboute me, and the wedes were wrapte aboute myne heade. 6 I wente downe to the botome of the hilles, & was barred in with earth for euer. But thou (o LORDE my God) hast brought vp my lyfe agayne out of corrupcion. 7 When my soule faynted within me, I thought vpon the LORDE: and my prayer came in vnto the, euen in to thy holy temple. 8 They that holde of vayne vanyties, wil forsake his mercy. 9 But I wil do the sacrifice with the voyce of thankesgeuynge, and wil paye that I haue vowed: for why? saluacion commeth of the LORDE. 10 And ye LORDE spake vnto ye fysh, and it cast out Ionas agayne vpon the drye londe.
