2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD,
and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou
heardest my voice.
3 For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the
seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and
thy waves passed over me.
4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again
toward thy holy temple.
5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth
closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with
her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my
life from corruption, O LORD my God.
7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and
my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.
8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.
