It’s fun to switch words around a bit sometimes–not to change the meaning, but just to make it look more dramatic, poetic…
“I’ve been thrown away,
Out of your sight.
You threw me into ocean’s depths.
Ocean gripped me by the throat.
The ancient Abyss grabbed me
and held tight.
My head was all tangled in seaweed
at the bottom of the sea
where the mountains take root.
I was as far down as a body can go
the gates were slamming shut behind me forever
When my life was slipping away, I remembered GOD…
I’m worshiping you, calling out in thanksgiving!”
(Jonah 2, from The Message)
