1 καὶ προσέταξεν κύριος κήτει μεγάλῳ καταπιεῖν τὸν Ιωναν καὶ ἦν Ιωνας ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ τοῦ κήτους τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας 2 καὶ προσηύξατο Ιωνας πρὸς κύριον τὸν θεὸν αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῆς κοιλίας τοῦ κήτους 3 καὶ εἶπεν ἐβόησα ἐν θλίψει μου πρὸς κύριον τὸν θεόν μου καὶ εἰσήκουσέν μου ἐκ κοιλίας ᾅδου κραυγῆς μου ἤκουσας φωνῆς μου 4 ἀπέρριψάς με εἰς βάθη καρδίας θαλάσσης καὶ ποταμοί με ἐκύκλωσαν πάντες οἱ μετεωρισμοί σου καὶ τὰ κύματά σου ἐ{P'} ἐμὲ διῆλθον 5 καὶ ἐγὼ εἶπα ἀπῶσμαι ἐξ ὀφθαλμῶν σου ἆρα προσθήσω τοῦ ἐπιβλέψαι πρὸς τὸν ναὸν τὸν ἅγιόν σου 6 περιεχύθη ὕδωρ μοι ἕως ψυχῆς ἄβυσσος ἐκύκλωσέν με ἐσχάτη ἔδυ ἡ κεφαλή μου εἰς σχισμὰς ὀρέων 7 κατέβην εἰς γῆν ἧς οἱ μοχλοὶ αὐτῆς κάτοχοι αἰώνιοι καὶ ἀναβήτω φθορὰ ζωῆς μου κύριε ὁ θεός μου 8 ἐν τῷ ἐκλείπειν ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ τὴν ψυχήν μου τοῦ κυρίου ἐμνήσθην καὶ ἔλθοι πρὸς σὲ ἡ προσευχή μου εἰς ναὸν ἅγιόν σου 9 φυλασσόμενοι μάταια καὶ ψευδῆ ἔλεος αὐτῶν ἐγκατέλιπον 10 ἐγὼ δὲ μετὰ φωνῆς αἰνέσεως καὶ ἐξομολογήσεως θύσω σοι ὅσα ηὐξάμην ἀποδώσω σοι σωτηρίου τῷ κυρίῳ 1 And what of Jonas? At the Lord’s bidding, a great sea-beast had swallowed him up; and there, in the belly of it, three days spent he and three nights. 2 This was the prayer which Jonas made to the Lord his God, there in the belly of the sea-beast: 3 Call I on the Lord in my peril, redress he grants me;[1] from the very womb of the grave call I, thou art listening to me! 4 Here in the depths of the sea’s heart thou wouldst cast me away, with the flood all about me, eddy of thine, wave of thine, sweeping over me, 5 till it seemed as if I were shut out from thy regard: yet life thou grantest me; I shall gaze on thy holy temple[2] once again. 6 Around me the deadly waters close, the depths engulf me, the weeds are wrapped about my head; 7 mountain caverns I must plumb, the very bars of earth my unrelenting prison; and still, O Lord my God, thou wilt raise me, living, from the tomb. 8 Daunted this heart, yet still of the Lord I would bethink me; prayer of mine should reach him, far away in his holy temple! 9 Let fools that court false worship all hope of pardon forgo; 10 mine to do sacrifice in thy honour, vows made and paid to the Lord, my deliverer! 1 Et præparavit Dominus piscem grandem ut deglutiret Jonam: et erat Jonas in ventre piscis tribus diebus et tribus noctibus. 2 Et oravit Jonas ad Dominum Deum suum de ventre piscis, 3 et dixit:

Clamavi de tribulatione mea ad Dominum,
et exaudivit me;
de ventre inferi clamavi,
et exaudisti vocem meam.
4
Et projecisti me in profundum in corde maris,
et flumen circumdedit me:
omnes gurgites tui, et fluctus tui super me transierunt.
5
Et ego dixi:
Abjectus sum a conspectu oculorum tuorum;
verumtamen rursus videbo templum sanctum tuum.
6
Circumdederunt me aquæ usque ad animam:
abyssus vallavit me,
pelagus operuit caput meum.
7
Ad extrema montium descendi;
terræ vectes concluserunt me in æternum:
et sublevabis de corruptione vitam meam, Domine Deus meus.
8
Cum angustiaretur in me anima mea,
Domini recordatus sum:
ut veniat ad te oratio mea,
ad templum sanctum tuum.
9
Qui custodiunt vanitates frustra,
misericordiam suam derelinquunt.
10
Ego autem in voce laudis immolabo tibi:
quæcumque vovi, reddam pro salute Domino.
11 καὶ προσετάγη τῷ κήτει καὶ ἐξέβαλεν τὸν Ιωναν ἐπὶ τὴν ξηράν 11 And now, at the Lord’s bidding, the sea-beast cast Jonas up again, high and dry on the beach. 11 Et dixit Dominus pisci, et evomuit Jonam in aridam.
