Which IP address are you using for the jail now?
If you're using 127.0.0.1, you can only ping the host's
own IP addresses, because packets with a localnet IP
never leave a machine.
If you're using the "real" address (192.168.1.38) for
the jail, then you should be able to ping all addresses
that you can ping from the host. I just did a quick
test on my machine; it has the IP address 172.20.0.2
(which is being translated with NAT on my router, but
that doesn't matter):
HOST# sysctl security.jail.allow_raw_sockets=1
security.jail.allow_raw_sockets: 0 -> 1
HOST# jail / testjail 172.20.0.2 /bin/sh -E
# ping www.google.com
PING www.l.google.com (184.108.40.206): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=0 ttl=54 time=31.196 ms
64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=1 ttl=54 time=25.553 ms
64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_seq=2 ttl=54 time=27.086 ms

It's a private address (RFC 1918). I assume that you've got
a NAT router that translates it to a public IP address.

Do you have one? So far you only mentioned 192.168.1.38.

It depends on what you want to do with the jail. Jails can
be used for vastly different purposes.
