Here is the scripture.
3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them: Amos 9:3

Here is the scripture with Hebrew meanings placed before the words "bottom" and "sea".
3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the [ qarqa? pronounced kar-kah' floor (as if paved with pieces or tesserae), of a building, of the sea, (one side of the) floor, pavement, bottom, soil, other.

The bottom of large bodies of water, large rivers, artificial basins, lakes, pools, sea-shores, and the sea are made of rock. The waters of the sea cover about three quarters of the earth. The earth is made of rock. rock is rent and torn and cut out of the bottom of large bodies of water, large rivers, artificial basins, lakes, pools, sea-shores,and the sea. Rock is rent, torn, and cut out of the earth.

The bed of the sea is paved..The bed of the sea is paved with pieces..The bed of the sea is paved with pieces of tesseraea (soil and stones).

Rivers of water continually carry billions and billions of tonnes of sediments into the sea. Psalm 58:7.. Psalm 46:2 The sediments which are compacted (tightly packed together layer upon layer), are heated, pressed, melted and cooled, and the sediments stick together and form sedimentary rock.

The surface of the earth is broken up into plates. The Continents, along with the sea, are sitting upon these constantly, and slowly moving plates. When the plates crash together they crack, buckle, and crumple, they slip and slide over, under, or along side one another, they force new land up, and out of the sea. There is molten rock beneath the ground at the bottom of the sea. Job 28:5 Molten rock at the bottom of the sea rips and tears and cuts, rocks from off the sea floor.

Limestone, is a sedimentary rock, it was formed beneath the sea over millions of years from the constant rain of the shells of tiny marine organisms who died and fell to the sea floor.

The movements of molten rock under the ground beneath the sea forced the limestone rock up, and onto the earth.

Limestone rock is soft. Water under the ground.
On the surface of the earth the limestone is exposed to rain; acidic rain washes over the surface of the limestone and dissolve joints in the rock forming pavements of stone. Rain water seeps into the ground. Hebrews 6:7 The water then flows down through the gaps in the rocks and into the ground where the water becomes, rivers of underground water.

Limestone contains calcium carbonate, CaCO 3.
Rivers of flowing underground water hollow out caves while dissolving and weakening rock

Drip Drop.
When water drips and drops from the tops of hollowed out caves, the water evaporates (dries up) and leaves behind stalactites and stalagmites which hang from the ceilings of the caves and rise from the cave floors. When a stalactite and a stalagmite meet together, they join and form a pillar within the cave.

Buildings.
Buildling stones are quarried from limestone.

Limestone: (chalkstone): natural calcium carbonate, CaCO 3, is a sedimentary rock which formed from the shells of minute marine organisms.

Tessellate: inlay (pave) with mosaic of small, identically shaped tiles, fit identically shaped tiles together exactly.
Tessellated: (paved, inlaid) with a mosaic of small tiles, of or resembling mosaic, having finely chequered surface.
Tesselation: chequering.
Tessera: one of the small cubes, blocks, (stones) used in mosaic.
