“Many therefore haue refused to lend for other mens ill dealing, fearing to be defrauded.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 8. Yet haue thou patience with a man in poore estate, and delay not to shew him mercy. 9. Helpe the poore for the commandements sake, and turne him not away because of his pouertie. 10. Lose thy money for thy brother and thy friend, and let it not rust vnder a stone to be lost.
