Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

Go out of his land - Moses is now bidden to demand not a permission for a three days‘ journey (Exodus 3:18 note), which might be within the boundaries of Egypt, but for departure from the land.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Go in,.... Into Pharaoh's palace, and into his presence, to whom access seems not to be very difficult; and perhaps access to princes was not attended with so much ceremony then as it now is:

speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt; though a king, and a king of so large a country as Egypt, yet do not be afraid to speak to him; speak to him plainly and boldly, not in a supplicatory, but in an authoritative way, in the name of the King of kings:

that he let the children of Israel go out of his land; this demand had been made before, but was rejected with an haughty air, and now it is repeated, before the Lord proceeds to punish him for his disobedience, that his judgments upon him might appear more manifestly to be just and right.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.

That he let the children of Israel go — God repeats his precepts, before he begins his punishments. Those that have oft been called in vain to leave their sins, yet must be called again, and again.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Exodus 6:11 Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.

Ver. 11. Go in, speak unto Pharaoh.] "Whether he will hear, or whether he will forbear." [Ezekiel 2:5] Speak when God bids us, though it may seem to little purpose: we have lost many a worse labour. The man of God "must be patient" - ανεξικακον, tolerant - "to all," yea, to "those that oppose," proving "if at any time God will give them repentance," &c. [2 Timothy 2:25]

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

THE SECOND MESSAGE TO PHARAOH.

(11) Speak unto Pharaoh.—The second message was an advance upon the first. The first asked only for permission to enter the wilderness, much of which was within the limits of Egypt; the second was a demand that the Israelites should be allowed “to go out of the land.” Such is the way of Providence generally. If we refuse a light cross, a heavier cross is laid on us. If we will not close with the Sybil on the first occasion, she offers us a worse bargain on the second.
