1 En Jona bad tot den HEERE, zijn God, uit het ingewand van den vis.

2 En hij zeide: Ik riep uit mijn benauwdheid tot den HEERE, en Hij antwoordde mij; uit den buik des grafs schreide ik, en Gij hoordet mijn stem.

3 Want Gij hadt mij geworpen in de diepte, in het hart der zeeen, en de stroom omving mij; al Uw baren en Uw golven gingen over mij henen.

4 En ik zeide: Ik ben uitgestoten van voor Uw ogen; nochtans zal ik den tempel Uwer heiligheid weder aanschouwen.

5 De wateren hadden mij omgeven tot de ziel toe, de afgrond omving mij; het wier was aan mijn hoofd gebonden.

6 Ik was nedergedaald tot de gronden der bergen; de grendelen der aarde waren om mij henen in eeuwigheid; maar Gij hebt mijn leven uit het verderf opgevoerd, o HEERE, mijn God!

7 Als mijn ziel in mij overstelpt was, dacht ik aan den HEERE, en mijn gebed kwam tot U, in den tempel Uwer heiligheid.

8 Die de valse ijdelheden onderhouden, verlaten hunlieder weldadigheid.

9 Maar ik zal U offeren met de stem der dankzegging; wat ik beloofd heb, zal ik betalen. Het heil is des HEEREN.

10 De HEERE nu sprak tot den vis; en hij spuwde Jona uit op het droge.


Exploring the Meaning of Jonah 2      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Jonah 2:1-10, Jonah is trapped in the belly of the great fish. He prays for salvation, and in the end, after this terrible trial, he is vomited forth onto dry land.

Before a new church -- either a state of good and truth with a group of people, or a new state of good an truth in ourselves - can come into existence, a period of temptation, of struggle, must occur. During this time a remnant of good and truth from prior states, will be preserved. This happens to us. When we really don't want to do something that we know we should do, we get into a state of spiritual temptation. That's what this chapter is about.

In Arcana Coelestia 756, it says: "In Jonah, 'The waters closed around me, even to my soul, the deep surrounded me. Here... 'the waters' and 'the deep' stand for the full extent of temptation.

This chapter also prophesies, or foreshadows, the combats that Jesus Christ would have with the hells, and his most grievous temptations at the time. The “three days and nights during which Jonah was in the bowels of the fish,” signify the entire duration of the combat with the hells.

In the New Testament, in Matthew 12:39-41, there's a reference back to this story:

"No sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and will condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah. And now One greater than Jonah is here.

For us, then... what? When we've turned away from the Lord, and we're in "the belly of the fish" - in temptations, struggles, combats, and everything looks pretty hopeless - then if we really pray, and seek the Lord's help, he can help us.

Here's a link to an interesting (audio) sermon on this chapter, by Rev. Todd Beiswenger.

Here, too, is a link to Rev. McCurdy's study guide for the Book of Jonah, which is available for free as a .pdf, for your use.
