← Jonás 1   Jonás 3 →

1 (H2-2) Y oró Jonás desde el vientre del pez á Jehová su Dios.

2 (H2-3) Y dijo: Clamé de mi tribulación á Jehová, Y él me oyó; Del vientre del sepulcro clamé, Y mi voz oiste.

3 (H2-4) Echásteme en el profundo, en medio de los mares, Y rodeóme la corriente; Todas tus ondas y tus olas pasaron sobre mí.

4 (H2-5) Y yo dije: Echado soy de delante de tus ojos: Mas aun veré tu santo templo.

5 (H2-6) Las aguas me rodearon hasta el alma, Rodeóme el abismo; La ova se enredó á mi cabeza.

6 (H2-7) Descendí á las raíces de los montes; La tierra echó sus cerraduras sobre mí para siempre: Mas tú sacaste mi vida de la sepultura, oh Jehová Dios mío.

7 (H2-8) Cuando mi alma desfallecía en mí, acordéme de Jehová; Y mi oración entró hasta ti en tu santo templo.

8 (H2-9) Los que guardan las vanidades ilusorias, Su misericordia abandonan.

9 (H2-10) Yo empero con voz de alabanza te sacrificaré; Pagaré lo que prometí. La salvación pertenece á Jehová.

10 (H2-11) Y mandó Jehová al pez, y vomitó á Jonás en tierra.
