Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jonah 2:7

_ _ soul fainted ... I remembered the Lord — beautifully exemplifying the triumph of spirit over flesh, of faith over sense (Psalms 73:26; Psalms 42:6). For a time troubles shut out hope; but faith revived when Jonah “remembered the Lord,” what a gracious God He is, and how now He still preserves his life and consciousness in his dark prison-house.

_ _ into thine holy temple — the temple at Jerusalem (Jonah 2:4). As there he looks in believing prayer towards it, so here he regards his prayer as already heard.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jonah 2:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jonah 2:7

Thine holy temple — Heaven, the temple of his glory, whence God gives the command for his delivery.
