Proverbs 20:16 - Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger; And for foreigners, hold him in pledge.
Words to Ponder
Thus it is in hell; they would die, but they cannot. The wicked shall be always dying but never dead; the smoke of the furnacedascends for ever and ever. Oh! who can endure thus to be ever upon the rack? This word "ever" breaks the heart. Wicked men do now think the Sabbaths long, and think a prayer long; but oh! how long will it be to lie in hell for ever and ever? - Thomas Watson
