I went down to the bottoms of the mountains.
The earth with its bars was around me forever;
then you brought up my life from the pit, O Yahweh my God. Bible other translations

“I went down to the bottoms of the mountains.” This is one of the verses that shows that Jonah’s recounting his experience (Jonah 2:2-9) happened sometime after he had been vomited out of the fish and had been raised from the dead. There was no way he could have known this while he was in the fish, it had to be an awareness of what had happened to him after he was out of the fish.
