IV. TEXT:

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.
