Proverbs 6:1-5 (New King James Version)

My son, if you become surety for your friend, If you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger,

You are snared by the words of your mouth; You are taken by the words of your mouth.

So do this, my son, and deliver yourself; For you have come into the hand of your friend: Go and humble yourself; Plead with your friend.

Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids.

Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.

VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Definition of Surety:

The word "surety" came from the Hebrew word:"arab" meaning to be security, to braid, give pledges, mortgage, undertake. Pledging of person for person is the earliest form of a surety, life for a life. (Genesis 43:9)

Genesis 43:9 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

I personally guarantee his safety. You may hold me responsible if I don’t bring him back to you. Then let me bear the blame forever.

Proverbs 11:15 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

There’s danger in putting up security for a stranger’s debt; it’s safer not to guarantee another person’s debt.

Proverbs 17:18 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

It’s poor judgment to guarantee another person’s debt or put up security for a friend.

Proverbs 22:26 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Don’t agree to guarantee another person’s debt or put up security for someone else.

Proverbs 20:16 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Get security from someone who guarantees a stranger’s debt. Get a deposit if he does it for foreigners.

Proverbs 27:13 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Get security from someone who guarantees a stranger’s debt. Get a deposit if he does it for foreigners.

B. Dangers of Surety:

1. You are snared by the words of your mouth.

"You are snared by the words of your mouth"

Snared from Greek word:"yaqosh" meaning ensnare by a fowler's snare.

It can be compared as in a wicked trapped by their own deeds because they are slave of sin, they can't help it. Being surety is you put yourself in a trap for someone else and no one can help you anymore once you're in it.

Psalms 9:16 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

The Lord is known for his justice. The wicked are trapped by their own deeds. Quiet Interlude

It can also be illustrated like the idols of gold and silver are a trap to those who takes and worships them. They are blinded to worship the creature rather than the Creator.

Deuteronomy 7:25 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

“You must burn their idols in fire, and you must not covet the silver or gold that covers them. You must not take it or it will become a trap to you, for it is detestable to the Lord your God.

2. You are taken by the words of your mouth

"You are taken by the words of your mouth"

Taken from the Hebrew word:"lakad" meaning to catch, to capture or occupy, to cohere. Your mouth that are meant to blessed you, have been there to capture or catch you.

It can be illustrated as when Moses spied out the Jazer area, they captured all the towns and drove out the Amorites. It's sure destruction for the Amorites since they lost their habitation to the Israelites. It's like a guarantee for you that you lost your own house to another.

Numbers 21:32 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

After Moses sent men to explore the Jazer area, they captured all the towns in the region and drove out the Amorites who lived there.

It's like the feeling of people captured by Joshua when their walls of refuge, the walls of Jericho have collapsed. You are like a house with broken down walls, and you have no security at all, because you have given them to someone else.

Joshua 6:20 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

When the people heard the sound of the rams’ horns, they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed, and the Israelites charged straight into the town and captured it.
