Job 3:18 (a) He speaks of the grave as a prison. The body is placed there and cannot be removed until the resurrection.

Psalm 69:33 (a) Probably this refers to those who are sold out to the Lord, and are His bond slaves to do only His will, and carry out His purposes.

Psalm 146:7 (a) These may describe those that are in Paradise, which at that time was the place of comfort in Sheol. It may also refer to those who are Satan's slaves bound by sins, iniquities and habits. Both of these are true.

Isaiah 10:4 (b) This difficult passage may mean that the unrighteous rulers shall eventually be punished by making such wicked devices that they themselves shall fall, and those who have been their prisoners will become their masters, and they themselves will become the prisoners. Certainly this has happened more than once.

Lamentations 3:34 (b) Probably these are those who are bound by Satan, by their habits, and by his seductive snares. CHRIST will pour out His wrath upon all such.

Zechariah 9:11 (a) Because the Lord JESUS had shed His precious Blood at Calvary, therefore He could go down to those who were kept in Paradise, and whose sins had been covered by the blood of the animals. Now He could take them right up into His Father's presence, because His own Blood had blotted out their sins. (See Ephesians 4:8).
