Exodus 3:20-22

Exodus 3:20-22: So I will stretch out My hand and strike Egypt with all My wonders which I will do in its midst; and after that he will let you go. And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be, when you go, that you shall not go empty-handed. But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, namely, of her who dwells near her house, articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters. So you shall plunder the Egyptians.”

Exodus 20:15: You shall not steal.
Leviticus 19:13: ‘You shall not cheat your neighbor, nor rob him. The wages of him who is hired shall not remain with you all night until morning.

Exodus 3 says that God told the Israelites to steal from the Egyptians, but Exodus 20 and Leviticus say that God told the Israelites not to steal.

There is no contradiction in the giver of a law making an exception.
