Proverbs 6:1 - 6:5

Practical Warnings

My son, if you have become a guarantor for your neighbor,
Have struck your hands in pledge for a stranger,
If you have been snared with the words of your mouth,
Have been caught with the words of your mouth,
Do this then, my son, and deliver yourself;
Since you have come into the hand of your neighbor,
Go, humble yourself, and badger your neighbor.
Give no sleep to your eyes,
Nor slumber to your eyelids;
Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hunter’s hand
And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Proverbs 17:17

A friend loves at all times,
And a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 24:10

If you are slack in the day of trouble,
Your strength is in trouble.

Proverbs 27:10

Do not forsake your friend or your father’s friend,
And do not come to your brother’s house in the day of your disaster;
Better is one who dwells near than a brother far away.
