Yonah (Book of Jonah), Chapter 2

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'2 Then Jonah prayed unto HaShem his G-d out of the fish's belly.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'3 And he said: I called out of mine affliction unto HaShem, and He answered me; out of the belly of the nether-world cried I, and Thou heardest my voice.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'4 For Thou didst cast me into the depth, in the heart of the seas, and the flood was round about me; all Thy waves and Thy billows passed over me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'5 And I said: 'I am cast out from before Thine eyes'; yet I will look again toward Thy holy temple.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'6 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul; the deep was round about me; the weeds were wrapped about my head.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'7 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars closed upon me for ever; yet hast Thou brought up my life from the pit, O HaShem my G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'8 When my soul fainted within me, I remembered HaShem; and my prayer came in unto Thee, into Thy holy temple.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'9 They that regard lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'10 But I will sacrifice unto Thee with the voice of thanksgiving; that which I have vowed I will pay. Salvation is of HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'11 And HaShem spoke unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
