Pr 6:1 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, if you have struck hands in pledge for another, (NIV) Pr 6:2 if you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, (NIV) Pr 6:3 then do this, my son, to free yourself, since you have fallen into your neighbor's hands: Go and humble yourself; press your plea with your neighbor! (NIV) Pr 6:4 Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. (NIV) Pr 6:5 Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. (NIV)
