1 Kaj Jona ekpregxis al la Eternulo, sia Dio, el la interno de la fisxo.

2 Kaj li diris: Kiam mi suferis, mi vokis al la Eternulo, Kaj Li respondis al mi; El la ventro de SXeol mi kriis, Kaj Vi auxskultis mian vocxon.

3 Vi jxetis min en la profundegon, en la internon de la maro, Kaj fluego min cxirkauxis; CXiuj Viaj ondegoj kaj ondoj iris super min.

4 Kaj mi pensis:Mi estas forpusxita de antaux Viaj okuloj; Tamen mi rigardos ankoraux Vian sanktan templon.

5 CXirkauxis min akvo gxis la animo; Abismo min cxirkauxis; Junko kovris mian kapon.

6 Mi falis malsupren gxis la fundamento de la montoj; La tero baris min por cxiam per siaj rigliloj; Sed Vi, ho Eternulo, mia Dio, elirigis mian vivon el la pereo.

7 Kiam mia animo senfortigxis en mi, mi rememoris la Eternulon; Kaj mia pregxo alvenis al Vi en Vian sanktan templon.

8 Tiuj, kiuj servas al vantajxoj, Senigas sin je favorkoreco.

9 Sed mi kun danka vocxo alportos al Vi oferon; Kion mi promesis, tion mi plenumos; Savo estas cxe la Eternulo.

10 Kaj la Eternulo ordonis al la fisxo, kaj gxi elvomis Jonan sur la sekteron.


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.
