The Belly of the Whale

"From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry."

"You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me.

The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me.

When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you."

— Jonah 2
