Exodus 3:22 (a) The Hebrew word for "borrow" is rendered "ask" eighty-five times and is rendered "borrow" five times. The real word for borrow, as we understand the meaning of it, is found in Deuteronomy 28:12; Nehemiah 5:4; Psalm 37:21. Israel did not borrow from the Egyptians only that to which they were entitled as wages for four hundred years of slavery. There was no indication nor suggestion that repayment would be made. It was a plain solicitation of that which was rightly their due for years of service with no pay.
