Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 2

1And the Lord appointed a huge fish to swallow up Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights.   אוַיְמַן יְהֹוָה דָּג גָּדוֹל לִבְלֹעַ אֶת יוֹנָה וַיְהִי יוֹנָה בִּמְעֵי הַדָּג שְׁלֹשָׁה יָמִים וּשְׁלֹשָׁה לֵילוֹת:
2And Jonah prayed to the Lord his God, from the belly of the fish.   בוַיִּתְפַּלֵּל יוֹנָה אֶל יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהָיו מִמְּעֵי הַדָּגָה:
3And he said: I called out from my distress to the Lord, and He answered me; from the belly of the grave I cried out, You heard my voice.   גוַיֹּאמֶר קָרָאתִי מִצָּרָה לִי אֶל יְהֹוָה וַיַּעֲנֵנִי מִבֶּטֶן שְׁאוֹל שִׁוַּעְתִּי שָׁמַעְתָּ קוֹלִי:
4And You cast me into the deep in the heart of the seas, and a river surrounded me; all Your breakers and Your waves passed over me.   דוַתַּשְׁלִיכֵנִי מְצוּלָה בִּלְבַב יַמִּים וְנָהָר יְסֹבְבֵנִי כָּל מִשְׁבָּרֶיךָ וְגַלֶּיךָ עָלַי עָבָרוּ:
5And I said, "I have been driven away from before Your eyes," Indeed, I will continue to gaze upon Your Holy Temple.   הוַאֲנִי אָמַרְתִּי נִגְרַשְׁתִּי מִנֶּגֶד עֵינֶיךָ אַךְ אוֹסִיף לְהַבִּיט אֶל הֵיכַל קָדְשֶׁךָ:
6Water has surrounded me even to the soul, the deep encompassed me; the Red Sea hangs over my head.   ואֲפָפוּנִי מַיִם עַד נֶפֶשׁ תְּהוֹם יְסֹבְבֵנִי סוּף חָבוּשׁ לְרֹאשִׁי:
7To the bottom of the mountains I descended, the earth-its bars are closed on me forever; but You brought up my life from Gehinnom, O Lord, my God.   זלְקִצְבֵי הָרִים יָרַדְתִּי הָאָרֶץ בְּרִחֶיהָ בַעֲדִי לְעוֹלָם וַתַּעַל מִשַּׁחַת חַיַּי יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהָי:
8When my soul grew faint upon me, I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came to You to Your Holy Temple.   חבְּהִתְעַטֵּף עָלַי נַפְשִׁי אֶת יְהֹוָה זָכָרְתִּי וַתָּבוֹא אֵלֶיךָ תְּפִלָּתִי אֶל הֵיכַל קָדְשֶׁךָ:
9Those who keep worthless futilities abandon their kindness.   טמְשַׁמְּרִים הַבְלֵי שָׁוְא חַסְדָּם יַעֲזֹבוּ:
10But I-with a voice of thanks will I sacrifice to You; what I vowed I will pay, for the salvation of the Lord.   יוַאֲנִי בְּקוֹל תּוֹדָה אֶזְבְּחָה לָּךְ אֲשֶׁר נָדַרְתִּי אֲשַׁלֵּמָה יְשׁוּעָתָה לַיהֹוָה:
11And the Lord said to the fish, and it spewed Jonah onto the dry land.   יאוַיֹּאמֶר יְהֹוָה לַדָּג וַיָּקֵא אֶת יוֹנָה אֶל הַיַּבָּשָׁה:
