|New International Version (© 2011)|
Captives also enjoy their ease; they no longer hear the slave driver's shout.
King James Bible
There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.
American Standard Version
There the prisoners are at ease together; They hear not the voice of the taskmaster.
Young's Literal Translation
Together prisoners have been at ease, They have not heard the voice of an exactor,
Job 3:18 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The prisoners rest together - Those who were slaves, feeling all the troubles, and scarcely tasting any of the pleasures of life, are quiet in the grave together; and the voice of the oppressor, the hard, unrelenting task-master, which was more terrible than death, is heard no more. They are free from his exactions, and his mouth is silent in the dust. This may be a reference to the Egyptian bondage. The children of Israel cried by reason of their oppressors or task-masters.
