New International Version
Have you never questioned those who travel? Have you paid no regard to their accounts--
King James Bible
Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,
Darby Bible Translation
Have ye not asked the wayfarers? and do ye not regard their tokens:
World English Bible
Haven't you asked wayfaring men? Don't you know their evidences,
Young's Literal Translation
Have ye not asked those passing by the way? And their signs do ye not know?
Job 21:29 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Have ye not asked them that go by the way? - This appears to be Job's answer. Consult travelers who have gone through different countries; and they will tell you that they have seen both examples - the wicked in great prosperity in some instances, while suddenly destroyed in others.

Do ye not know their tokens - Mr. Good translates the whole verse thus: "Surely thou canst never have inquired of men of travel; or thou couldst not have been ignorant of their tokens. Hadst thou made proper inquiries, thou wouldst have heard of their awful end in a thousand instances. And also of their prosperity." See at the end of this chapter, Job 21:34 (note).
