"Lay down, now, a pledge for me with Yourself; Who is there that will be my guarantor?
My son, if you have become surety for your neighbor, Have given a pledge for a stranger,
A man lacking in sense pledges And becomes guarantor in the presence of his neighbor.
Do not be among those who give pledges, Among those who become guarantors for debts.
