My son, if you have become a
surety for your neighbor, Have given a pledge for a stranger,
Proverbs 11:15, Proverbs 17:18, Proverbs 20:16, Proverbs 22:26, Proverbs 27:13
He who is aguarantor for a stranger will surely suffer for it, But he who hates being a guarantor is secure.
A man lacking in sense apledges And becomes guarantor in the presence of his neighbor.
Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger; And for foreigners, hold him in pledge.
Do not be among those who agive pledges, Among those who become guarantors for debts.
aTake his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger; And for an adulterous woman hold him in pledge.
