Exodus 12:35, KJV And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they BORROWED of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: SAME VERSE, NKJV Now the children of Israel had done according to the word of Moses, and they had ASKED FROM the Egyptians articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing. The Hebrew for "borrowed" or "asked from" here is sha'al, which has several English meanings, including borrow and ask for. The dictionary definition for "borrow" is to receive with the implied or expressed intention of returning the same or an equivalent. Obviously the Israelis weren't gonna return the goods the Egyptians gave them, and I believe those Egyptians knew it. They were hoping to "buy off" God from harming them further by being kind to His people. So...Is the KJV incorrect in saying "borrowed" ? I cannot find where borrow ever meant simply to ask for and accept something with no intent to return it. I have some thoughts but they're gonna wait till tomorrow, God Willing, as I hafta get up at 6 AM EDT to go to work.
