Scripture for Today Jonah 2: 1-10

2) I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction, And He answered me. “Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, And You heard my voice.

3)For You cast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, And the floods surrounded me; All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.

4)Then I said, ‘I have been cast out of Your sight; Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.’ The deep closed around me;

5)The waters surrounded me, even to my soul; Weeds were wrapped around my head.

6)I went down to the moorings of the mountains; The earth with its bars closed behind me forever; Yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O Lord, my God.

7)”When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the Lord; And my prayer went up to You, Into Your holy temple.

8)”Those who regard worthless idols Forsake their own Mercy.

9)But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.”
