Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Proverbs 6:3

_ _ come ... friend — in his power.

_ _ humble ... sure thy friend — urge as a suppliant; that is, induce the friend to provide otherwise for his debt, or secure the surety.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Proverbs 6:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Proverbs 6:3

Hand — Into the power. Friend — Of the debtor, for whom, as being thy friend, thou didst become surety; whereby thou art in his power, by his neglect or unfaithfulness, to expose thee to the payment of the debt. Make sure — Or, and prevail with thy friend, strive to win him by thine incessant and earnest solicitations.
