Deuteronomy 24:17 Parallel
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Warning against oppressing the Poor. - Deuteronomy 24:10, Deuteronomy 24:11. If a loan of any kind was lent to a neighbour, the lender was not to go into his house to pledge (take) a pledge, but was to let the borrower bring the pledge out. The meaning is, that they were to leave it to the borrower to give a pledge, and not compel him to give up something as a pledge that might be indispensable to him.
