Then Jonah prayed from the fish's belly: 
  "I cried out to the Lord,
        and He answered me.

  Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
        and You heard my voice.

  Floods surrounded me;
        billows and waves passed over me.
  waters surrounded me,
        even to my soul;
 
  I went down to the moorings of the mountains;

  When my soul fainted within me,
        I remembered the Lord;

  You brought my life up from the pit,
        O Lord my God.

  When my life was ebbing away,
        I remembered the Lord,
  And my prayer rose to you,
        to your holy temple."

                                      --- Jonah 2:1-6
