That you may [fn]correctly answer him who sent you?

Or crush the afflicted at the gate;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 22:23 - For the LORD will plead their case
And [fn]take the life of those who rob them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 22:24 - Do not associate with a man given to anger;
Or go with a hot-tempered man,

And [fn]find a snare for yourself.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 22:26 - Do not be among those who give [fn]pledges,
Among those who become guarantors for debts.

Why should he take your bed from under you?
