Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 3:18

_ _ There the prisoners rest — from their chains.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 3:11-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 3:18

The oppressor — Or, taskmaster, who urges and forces them to work by cruel threatenings and stripes. Job meddles not here with their eternal state after death, of which he speaks hereafter, but only their freedom from worldly troubles, which is the sole matter of his present discourse.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 3:18

[There] the (m) prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.

(m) All they who sustain any kind of calamity and misery in this world: which he speaks after the judgment of the flesh.
