John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Exodus 20:15

Thou shalt not steal — This command forbids us to rob ourselves of what we have, by sinful spending, or of the use and comfort of it by sinful sparing; and to rob others by invading our neighbour's rights, taking his goods, or house, or field, forcibly or clandestinely, over — reaching in bargains, not restoring what is borrowed or found, with — holding just debts, rents or wages; and, which is worst of all, to rob the public in the coin or revenue, or that which is dedicated to the service of religion.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Exodus 20:15

Thou shalt not (l) steal.

(l) But study to save his goods.
