"Water becomes hard like stone, And the surface of the deep is imprisoned.
King James Bible
The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
Darby Bible Translation
When the waters lie hidden as in stone, and the face of the deep holdeth fast together.
World English Bible
The waters become hard like stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen.
Young's Literal Translation
As a stone waters are hidden, And the face of the deep is captured.
Job 38:30 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The waters are hid as with a stone - The solid ice is laid as a stone upon them, wholly concealing them from view.
And the face of the deep is frozen - Margin, "taken." The idea is, they seem to take hold of one another (יתלכדוּ yitlâkadû); they hold together, or cohere. The formation of ice is thus appealed to as a proof of the wisdom of God, and as a thing which Job could not explain. No man could produce this effect; nor could Job explain how it was done.
