Jonah 2:3

Hebrew Bible

1 Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the stomach of the fish 2 and said, “I called out to the Lord from my distress, and he answered me; from the belly of Sheol I cried out for help, and you heard my prayer. 3 You threw me into the deep waters, into the middle of the sea; the ocean current engulfed me; all the mighty waves you sent swept over me. 4 I thought I had been banished from your sight and that I would never again see your holy temple. 5 Water engulfed me up to my neck; the deep ocean surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.

Psalm 42:7

Hebrew Bible

5 Why are you depressed, O my soul? Why are you upset? Wait for God! For I will again give thanks to my God for his saving intervention. 6 I am depressed, so I will pray to you while in the region of the upper Jordan, from Hermon, from Mount Mizar. 7 One deep stream calls out to another at the sound of your waterfalls; all your billows and waves overwhelm me. 8 By day the Lord decrees his loyal love, and by night he gives me a song, a prayer to the God of my life. 9 I will pray to God, my high ridge: “Why do you ignore me? Why must I walk around mourning because my enemies oppress me?”
