Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Jonah 2:1-9 (NLT)
Jonah’s prayer
1 Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from inside the fish. 2 He said, “I cried out to the LORD in my great trouble, and he answered me. I called to you from the world of the dead, [1] and LORD, you heard me! 3 You threw me into the ocean depths, and I sank down to the heart of the sea. I was buried beneath your wild and stormy waves. 4 Then I said, `O LORD, you have driven me from your presence. How will I ever again see your holy Temple?’
5 “I sank beneath the waves, and death was very near. The waters closed in around me, and seaweed wrapped itself around my head. 6 I sank down to the very roots of the mountains. I was locked out of life and imprisoned in the land of the dead. But you, O LORD my God, have snatched me from the yawning jaws of death!
7 “When I had lost all hope, I turned my thoughts once more to the LORD. And my earnest prayer went out to you in your holy Temple. 8 Those who worship false gods turn their backs on all God’s mercies. 9 But I will offer sacrifices to you with songs of praise, and I will fulfill all my vows. For my salvation comes from the LORD alone.”

[1]
Hebrew, from Sheol.

This scene would, of course, actually be in total darkness, however, I needed a light source of some sort, to illuminate the scene. The glow is coming from Jonah’s praying hands!

RESEARCH/ADDITIONAL NOTES:
Notice I have put seaweed in Jonah’s hair, which is referred to in Jonah’s prayer, inside the fish, in Jonah 2:5.
