_ _ Speak now in the ears of the people — These verses, describing the communication which had been made in private to Moses, are inserted here as a parenthesis, and will be considered (Exodus 12:35).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Exodus 11:2

Let every man ask (not borrow!) of his neighbour jewels — This was the last day of their servitude, when they were to go away, and their masters, who had abused them in their work, would now have defrauded them of their wages, and have sent them away empty, and the poor Israelites were so fond of liberty that they themselves would be satisfied with that, without pay: but he that executeth righteousness and judgment for the oppressed, provided that the labourers should not lose their hire. God ordered them to demand it now at their departure, in jewels of silver, and jewels of gold; to prepare for which, God had now made the Egyptians as willing to part with them upon any terms, as before the Egyptians had made them willing to go upon any terms.
