Clamavi de tribulatione mea [I cried out of my affliction] (Jonah 2: 2-3, 5) – Philippe de Monte
Jonah 2: 2-3, 5 [Latin] – I cried out of my affliction to the Lord, and He heard me: I cried out of the belly of hell, and thou hast heard my voice. And thou hast cast me forth into the deep, in the heart of the sea, and a flood hath compassed me. The waters compassed me about even to the soul: the deep hath closed me round about, the sea hath covered my head.
Original in Latin:
Clamavi de tribulatione mea ad Dominum et exaudivit me; de ventre inferi clamavi et exaudisti vocem meam. Et proiecisti me in profundum in corde maris et flumen circumdedit me. Circumdederunt me aquae usque ad animam meam: abyssus vallavit me, pelagus operuit caput meum.
