6 I went down to the very bottoms of the mountains; the gates of the netherworld barred me in forever, but you brought me up from the Pit, O Lord, my God. 7 When my life was ebbing away, I called out to the Lord. And my prayer came to you, to your holy temple. 8 Those who worship worthless idols forfeit the mercy that could be theirs. 9 But as for me, I promise to offer a sacrifice to you with a public declaration of praise; I will surely do what I have promised. Salvation belongs to the Lord!” 10 Then the Lord commanded the fish and it vomited Jonah out onto dry land.
4 You will free me from the net they hid for me, for you are my place of refuge. 5 Into your hand I entrust my life; you will rescue me, O Lord, the faithful God. 6 I hate those who serve worthless idols, but I trust in the Lord. 7 I will be happy and rejoice in your faithfulness, because you notice my pain and you are aware of how distressed I am. 8 You do not deliver me over to the power of the enemy; you enable me to stand in a wide open place.
