1 فصلى يونان الى الرب الهه من جوف الحوت

2 وقال. دعوت من ضيقي الرب فاستجابني . ‎ صرخت من جوف الهاوية فسمعت صوتي.

3 لانك طرحتني في العمق في قلب البحار. فاحاط بي نهر. جازت فوقي جميع تيّاراتك ولججك.

4 فقلت قد طردت من امام عينيك. ولكنني اعود انظر الى هيكل قدسك.

5 قد اكتنفتني مياه الى النفس. احاط بي غمر. التفّ عشب البحر براسي.

6 نزلت الى اسافل الجبال. مغاليق الارض عليّ الى الابد. ثم اصعدت من الوهدة حياتي ايها الرب الهي.

7 حين اعيت فيّ نفسي ذكرت الرب فجاءت اليك صلاتي الى هيكل قدسك.

8 الذين يراعون اباطيل كاذبة يتركون نعمتهم.

9 اما انا فبصوت الحمد اذبح لك واوفي بما نذرته. للرب الخلاص

10 وأمر الرب الحوت فقذف يونان الى البر
