“An honest man is suretie for his neighbour: but hee that is impudent, will forsake him.”
King James Version (KJV)
11. Lay vp thy treasure according to the commandements of the most high, and it shall bring thee more profite then golde. 12. Shut vp almes in thy storehouses: and it shall deliuer thee from all affliction. 13. It shal fight for thee against thine enemies, better then a mightie shield and strong speare. 14. An honest man is suretie for his neighbour: but hee that is impudent, will forsake him. 15. Forget not the friendship of thy suretie: for hee hath giuen his life for thee. 16. A sinner will ouerthrow the good estate of his suretie: 17. And he that is of an vnthankfull minde, will leaue him in [danger] that deliuered him.
