Proverbs 6:1-5 World English Bible (WEB)

My son, if you have become collateral for your neighbor,
    if you have struck your hands in pledge for a stranger;
You are trapped by the words of your mouth.
    You are ensnared with the words of your mouth.
Do this now, my son, and deliver yourself,
    since you have come into the hand of your neighbor.
Go, humble yourself.
    Press your plea with your neighbor.
Give no sleep to your eyes,
    nor slumber to your eyelids.
Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,
    like a bird from the snare of the fowler.

Proverbs 6:1-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Parental Counsel

My son, if you have become surety for your neighbor,
Have [a]given a pledge for a stranger,
If you have been snared with the words of your mouth,
Have been caught with the words of your mouth,
Do this then, my son, and deliver yourself;
Since you have come into the [b]hand of your neighbor,
Go, humble yourself, and importune your neighbor.
Give no sleep to your eyes,
Nor slumber to your eyelids;
Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hunter’s hand
And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
