Proverbs 22:26–27; Proverbs 27:13

26  Be not one of those who ygive pledges,

who put up security for debts.

27  If you have nothing with which to pay,

why should zyour bed be taken from under you?


13  pTake a man's garment when he has put up security for a stranger,

and hold it in pledge when he puts up security for an adulteress.1
