Proverbs 22:26-27 English Standard Version (ESV)
26 Be not one of those who give pledges,
who put up security for debts.
27 If you have nothing with which to pay,
why should your bed be taken from under you?
Proverbs 22:26-27 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Do not be among those who give pledges [involving themselves in others’ finances],
Or among those who become guarantors for others’ debts.
If you have nothing with which to pay [another’s debt when he defaults],
Why should his creditor take your bed from under you?
Proverbs 22:26-27 New International Version (NIV)
26 Do not be one who shakes hands in pledge
or puts up security for debts;
27 if you lack the means to pay,
your very bed will be snatched from under you.
