And Yahweh spoke to the fish and it vomited out Jonah on the dry land. Bible other translations

“Yahweh spoke to the fish.” The whole universe and everything in it is the creation of God, and all God’s creation recognizes His voice. God likely did not actually “speak” to the fish using words, but “spoke” in a way that the fish obeyed.

“vomited out Jonah.” Many fish can vomit out that which they have just swallowed, but Jonah had been in the fish for 3 days and 3 nights. Nevertheless it vomited out Jonah whole onto the dry land. That the fish could vomit Jonah onto the dry land shows that at the place where that happened the shore was steep to the point that the fish could mostly be in the water and yet Jonah could land upon the dry land. Jonah, now on the Phoenician coast, was 400 miles from Nineveh.
