A man promiseth for his neighbour; and when he hath lost reverence, that is, shamefastness before God and man, the borrower shall be forsaken of (or by) him. Worst promise, by which the neighbour promised falsely to deliver his borrow, hath lost many loving men, and hath moved them as the waves of the sea. It going in compass made mighty men to pass over; and (then) they wandered about among alien folks. [A man again-promiseth of his neighbour; and when he hath lost reverence, he shall be forsaken of him. Most shrewd (or depraved) again-promising spoiled many loving men, and (al)together stirred them as the floods, or waves, of the sea. Compassing it made mighty men to go out; and wandered in alien folks.]
