Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 39:7

_ _ multitude — rather, “din”; he sets it at defiance, being far away from it in the freedom of the wilderness.

_ _ driver — who urges on the tame ass to work. The wild ass is the symbol of uncontrolled freedom in the East; even kings have, therefore, added its name to them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 39:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 39:7

Scorneth — He feareth them not when they pursue him, because he is swift, and can easily escape them. Driver — He will not be brought to receive his yoke, nor to do his drudgery.
