hands » Suretiship entered into by striking
A man void of good sense gives a pledge and becomes security for another in the presence of his neighbor.
Be not one of those who strike hands and pledge themselves, or of those who become security for another's debts.
My son, if you have become security for your neighbor, if you have given your pledge for a stranger or another,
Give me a pledge with Yourself [acknowledge my innocence before my death]; who is there that will give security for me?
