7 I was going down to the bottoms of the mountains, to a land whose bars would close me in forever; but you brought me up alive from the pit, Adonai, my God!
Complete Jewish Bible
The 'bottoms'( ''cuttings'') of mountains which happen to be in the pit makes the verse obscure as the pit is said to 'bottomless,' and a place well known to be the abode of the dead. In addition he says that he saw the bars of the earth 'forever,' yet he was in the 'belly' all the while he was submerged and for ONLY 3 days, up until he was vomitted onto the land.
So what are these 'bottoms of mountains' which Jonah saw in the pit, because in my opinion, no detail in scriptures in redundant.
