Morning Scripture Reading - Jonah 2:1-6

Jonah 2:1-6 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Jonah’s Prayer

2 Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from inside the fish:

2 I called to the Lord in my distress,

and He answered me.

I cried out for help in the belly of Sheol;

You heard my voice.

3 You threw me into the depths,

into the heart of the seas,

and the current overcame me.

All Your breakers and Your billows swept over me.

4 But I said: I have been banished

from Your sight,

yet I will look once more

toward Your holy temple.

5 The waters engulfed me up to the neck;

the watery depths overcame me;

seaweed was wrapped around my head.

6 I sank to the foundations of the mountains;

the earth with its prison bars closed behind me forever!

But You raised my life from the Pit, Lord my God!
