One who makes himself personally responsible for the safe appearing of another, Genesis 43:9 44:32 , or for the full payment of his debts, etc., Proverbs 22:26 . Christ is the "surety of a better testament;" that is, in the glorious and complete covenant of grace he engages to meet all the claims of the divine law against his people, that they may be absolved, and enriched with all covenant blessing, Hebrews 7:22 . Hence his obedience unto death, Isaiah 53:5,12 .
