1He that is merciful will lend unto his neighbour; and he that strengtheneth his hand keepeth the commandments. 2Lend to thy neighbour in time of his need, and pay thou thy neighbour again in due season. 3Keep thy word, and deal faithfully with him, and thou shalt always find the thing that is necessary for thee.4Many, when a thing was lent them, reckoned it to be found, and put them to trouble that helped them. 5Till he hath received, he will kiss a man's hand; and for his neighbour's money he will speak submissly: but when he should repay, he will prolong the time, and return words of grief, and complain of the time. 6If he prevail, he shall hardly receive the half, and he will count as if he had found it: if not, he hath deprived him of his money, and he hath gotten him an enemy without cause: he payeth him with cursings and railings; and for honour he will pay him disgrace.
