Jonah Chapters (English Bible : Catholic Public Domain Version – CPDV)

1 And the Lord prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights.

2 And Jonah prayed to the Lord, his God, from the belly of the fish.

3 And he said: “I cried out to the Lord from my tribulation, and he heeded me. From the belly of hell, I cried out, and you heeded my voice.

4 And you have thrown me into the deep, in the heart of the sea, and a flood has encircled me. All your whirlpools and your waves have passed over me.

5 And I said: I am expelled from the sight of your eyes. Yet, truly, I will see your holy temple again.

6 The waters surrounded me, even to the soul. The abyss has walled me in. The ocean has covered my head.

7 I descended to the base of the mountains. The bars of the earth have enclosed me forever. And you will raise up my life from corruption, Lord, my God.

8 When my soul was in anguish within me, I called to mind the Lord, so that my prayer might come to you, to your holy temple.

9 Those who in vain observe vanities, abandon their own mercy.

10 But I, with a voice of praise, will sacrifice to you. I will repay whatever I have vowed to the Lord, because of my salvation.”

11 And the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
