Against Pledges

1 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor
or entered into an agreement with a stranger,
2 you have been trapped by the words of your lips
ensnared by the words of your mouth.
3 Do this, then, my son, and free yourself,
for you have put yourself in your neighbor’s power:
Go, humble yourself, and plead with your neighbor.
