Bible: Proverbs 6:1-3

Admonitions and Warnings against Dangerous and Destructive Acts 1 

6:1 My child, 2  if you have made a pledge 3  for your neighbor,

and 4  have become a guarantor 5  for a stranger, 6 

6:2 if 7  you have been ensnared 8  by the words you have uttered, 9 

and have been caught by the words you have spoken,

6:3 then, my child, do this in order to deliver yourself, 10 

because you have fallen into your neighbor’s power: 11 

go, humble yourself, 12 

and appeal firmly 13  to your neighbor.
