New International Version - UK
Warnings against folly
6 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbour,
if you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger,
2 you have been trapped by what you said,
ensnared by the words of your mouth.
3 So do this, my son, to free yourself,
since you have fallen into your neighbour’s hands:
go – to the point of exhaustion – [a]
and give your neighbour no rest!
- Proverbs 6:3 Or Go and humble yourself,
