CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
24:12 Thou shalt not sleep - But restore it before night, which intimates that he should take no such thing for pledge, without which a man cannot sleep.
You must wait outside while he goes in and brings it out to you.
Return the cloak to its owner by sunset so he can stay warm through the night and bless you, and the LORD your God will count you as righteous.
