Proverbs 6 (ESV)
1 My son,
have put up security for your neighbor,
have given your pledge for a stranger,
2 if you are
snared in the words of your mouth,
caught in the words of your mouth,
3 then do this, my son,
and save yourself,
for you have come into the hand of your neighbor:
go, hasten, and plead urgently with your neighbor.
4 Give your eyes no sleep and your eyelids no slumber;
5 save yourself
like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,
like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
6 Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.
7 Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, 8 she
prepares her bread in summer
and gathers her food in harvest.
