 Proverbs 6:2

 A man should never to be surety for more than he is able and willing to pay, and can affordto pay, without putting stress on his family; he ought to look upon every sum he is surety for, as his own debt. Many times, pride may play a part in one making such promises and sometimes a hope of a favor in return could play a part.
Proverbs 22:26
Be not thou one of them that strike hands, or of them that are sureties for debts.
Proverbs 22:27

The word bed in Proverbs 22:27 actually could mean sleep or a literal bed. So weather weare talking about loosing sleep or foreclosure on your home, we should make financialdecisions rashly, and not hastily without considering how the debt will be paid. We areexpected to bring our pledge to our creditor when it is due.
When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his houseto fetch his pledge.
Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bringout the pledge abroad unto thee.

Proverbs 6:4
Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.
Proverbs 6:5
Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from thehand of the fowler.
Humble yourself. Ask humbly to be released from the obligation of being a co-signer.Do not threaten or use foul language, you’ll just make matters worse. But do it swiftly 
because delays also can make matters worse. Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber tothine eyelids, unless you are willing to take full responsibility for all charges like Paul did for Onesimus.
I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and tome:
Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might haveministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as itwere of necessity, but willingly.
For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receivehim for ever;
 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;
I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not sayto thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.
- Onesimus has robbed his master, Philemon, and is headed for Rome while fleeing from Philemon in Colosse.- While on the run, Paul took in Onesimus as if he were his own son, and taught him all about  Jesus Christ.- The name Onesimus means profitable;
Onesimus: 3682
(on-ay'-sim-os);Word Origin: Greek, Noun Masculine, Strong #: 3682Onesimus = "profitable or useful"1. a Christian slave of Philemon
