CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And if the man be poor, etc. - Did not this law preclude pledging entirely, especially in case of the abjectly poor? For who would take a pledge in the morning which he knew, if not redeemed, he must restore at night? However, he might resume his claim in the morning, and have the pledge daily returned, and thus keep up his property in it till the debt was discharged; see the note on Exodus 22:26.

If you take your neighbor's cloak as a pledge, return it by sunset,
And if we are careful to obey all this law before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness."
If the neighbor is poor, do not go to sleep with their pledge in your possession.
This was credited to him as righteousness for endless generations to come.
He does not oppress anyone, but returns what he took in pledge for a loan. He does not commit robbery but gives his food to the hungry and provides clothing for the naked.
Therefore, Your Majesty, be pleased to accept my advice: Renounce your sins by doing what is right, and your wickedness by being kind to the oppressed. It may be that then your prosperity will continue."
