“Many when a thing was lent them, reckoned it to be found, and put them to trouble that helped them.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. Hee that is mercifull, will lende vnto his neighbour, and hee that strengthneth his hande, keepeth the Commandements. 2. Lend to thy neighbour in time of his need, and pay thou thy neighbour againe in due season. 3. Keepe thy word & deale faithfully with him, and thou shalt alwaies finde the thing that is necessary for thee. 4. Many when a thing was lent them, reckoned it to be found, and put them to trouble that helped them. 5. Till he hath receiued, he will kisse a mans hand: and for his neighbours money he will speake submissely: but when he should repay, he will prolong the time, and returne words of griefe, and complaine of the time. 6. If he preuaile, he shall hardly receiue the halfe, and he will count as if he had found it: if not; he hath depriued him of his money, and he hath gotten him an enemy without cause: he payeth him with cursings, and raylings: and for honour he will pay him disgrace. 7. Many therefore haue refused to lend for other mens ill dealing, fearing to be defrauded.
