CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
24:13 Bless thee - Bring down the blessing of God upon thee by his prayers: for though his prayers, if he be not a good man, shall not avail for his own behalf, yet they shall avail for thy benefit. It shall be right - Esteemed and accepted by God as a work of righteousness, or mercy.
If you take your neighbor's cloak as security for a loan, you must return it before sunset.
For we will be counted as righteous when we obey all the commands the LORD our God has given us.'
If your neighbor is poor and gives you his cloak as security for a loan, do not keep the cloak overnight.
So he has been regarded as a righteous man ever since that time.
He is a merciful creditor, not keeping the items given as security by poor debtors. He does not rob the poor but instead gives food to the hungry and provides clothes for the needy.
"'King Nebuchadnezzar, please accept my advice. Stop sinning and do what is right. Break from your wicked past and be merciful to the poor. Perhaps then you will continue to prosper.'
