Practical Warnings

My son, if you have put up esecurity for your neighbor,

have egiven your pledge for a stranger,

then do this, my son, and save yourself,

for you have come into the hand of your neighbor:

go, hasten,1 and gplead urgently with your neighbor.

29  A man of violence dentices his neighbor

and leads him in a way that is not good.

10  The soul of the wicked desires evil;

his neighbor finds no mercy in his eyes.

17  Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor’s house,

lest he have his fill of you and hate you.

10  Do not forsake your friend and hyour father’s friend,

and do not go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity.

iBetter is a neighbor who is near

than a brother who is far away.

14  Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice,

rising early in the morning,

will be counted as cursing.
