Proverbs 6:1-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Against Going Surety for One’s Neighbor
1 My son, if you have become surety to your neighbor,
given your hand in pledge to another,
2 You have been snared by the utterance of your lips,
caught by the words of your mouth;
3 So do this, my son, to free yourself,
since you have fallen into your neighbor’s power:
Go, hurry, rouse your neighbor!
4 Give no sleep to your eyes,
nor slumber to your eyelids;
5 Free yourself like a gazelle from the hunter,
or like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
