1 ငါး၏ဝမ်းထဲမှာနေစဉ်တွင်၊ ယောနသည် မိမိ ဘုရားသခင် ထာဝရဘုရားကို ဆုတောင်းသောစကားဟူ မူကား၊

2 ငါသည် ဒုက္ခဆင်းရဲကို ခံရသောကြောင့်၊ ထာဝရ ဘုရားကို ဟစ်ခေါ်၍ ငါ့စကားကို ကြားတော်မူ၏။ မရ ဏာနိုင်ငံ၏ဝမ်းထဲက ဟစ်ခေါ်သော စကားသံကို နား ထောင်တော်မူ၏။

6 တောင်ခြေရင်းအမြစ်သို့ အကျွန်ုပ်ဆင်း၍၊ မြေ ကန့်လန့်ကျင်အတွင်း၌ အစဉ်အမြဲပိတ်ထားသော်လည်း၊ အကျွန်ုပ်၏ဘုရားသခင် ထာဝရဘုရား၊ ကိုယ်တော်သည် အကျွန်ုပ်အသက်ကို ပျက်စီးရာမှ ကယ်ဆယ်တော်မူလိမ့် မည်။

7 အကျွန်ုပ်သည် စိတ်ပျက်သောအခါ ထာဝရဘုရား ကို အောက်မေ့၍၊ အကျွန်ုပ်၏ပဌနာသည် သန့်ရှင်းသော ဗိမာန်တော်၌ ကိုယ်တော်ထံသို့ ဝင်ပါ၏။

8 မုသာအနတ္တကို မှီဝဲသောသူတို့သည် မိမိတို့ ကရုဏာခံရာအကြောင်းကို စွန့်ပစ်ကြပါ၏။

9 အကျွန်ုပ်မူကား၊ ကျေးဇူးတော်ကို ချီးမွမ်းသော စကားနှင့် ကိုယ်တော်အား ယဇ်ပူဇော်ပါမည်။ သစ္စာဂတိ ထားသည်အတိုင်း သစ္စာဝတ်ကို ပြုပါမည်။ ထာဝရ ဘုရား၏ ကျေးဇူးတော်ကြောင့် ချမ်းသာရပါသည်ဟု ဆုတောင်းလေ၏။

10 ထိုအခါ ငါးကြီးသည် ထာဝရဘုရား၏ အမိန့် တော်ကို ခံ၍ ယောနကို ကုန်းပေါ်သို့ အန်လေ၏။

Exploring the Meaning of Jonah 2      

By Joe David

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.
