Proverbs 6:1-5

Leeser(i) 1 My son, If thou hast become surety for thy friend, if thou hast struck thy hand for a stranger; 2 If thou art ensnared through the words of thy mouth, if thou art caught through the words of thy mouth: 3 Then do this by all means, my son, and deliver thyself, because thou art come into the power of thy friend, Go hasten to him, and urge thy friend. 4 Grant not any sleep to thy eyes, nor slumber to thy eyelids. 5 Deliver thyself as a roebuck from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
