    Barnes' Notes on Job 39:8

    The range of the mountains is his pasture - The word rendered "range" יתור yâthûr, means properly a "searching out," and then that which is obtained by search. The word "range" expresses the idea with sufficient exactness. The usual range of the wild ass is the mountains. Pallas, who has given a full description of the habits of the Onager, or wild ass, states, that it, especially loves desolate hills as its abode.
