I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “borrow”.

Exodus 3:22 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour,
and of her that sojourneth in her house,
jewels of silver,
and jewels of gold,
and raiment:
and ye shall put them upon your sons,
and upon your daughters;
and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.

Exodus 11:2 Speak now in the ears of the people,
and let every man borrow of his neighbour,
and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver,
and jewels of gold.

Exodus 12:35 And the children of Israel did
according to the word of Moses;
and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver,
and jewels of gold,
and raiment:

Exodus 22:14 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbour,
and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with it,
he shall surely make it good.

as he promised thee:
and thou shalt lend unto many nations,

but they shall not reign over thee.

borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours,

and that upon our lands and vineyards.

and the borrower is servant to the lender.

Isaiah 24:2 And it shall be,
as with the people,
so with the priest;
as with the servant,
so with his master;
as with the maid,
so with her mistress;
as with the buyer,
so with the seller;
as with the lender,
so with the borrower;
as with the taker of usury,
so with the giver of usury to him.

and from him that would borrow of thee
turn not thou away.
