From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Various regulations as to the relation between debtor and
    creditor are laid down in the Scriptures.
      (1.) The debtor was to deliver up as a pledge to the creditor
    what he could most easily dispense with (Deut. 24:10, 11).
      (2.) A mill, or millstone, or upper garment, when given as a
    pledge, could not be kept over night (Ex. 22:26, 27).
      (3.) A debt could not be exacted during the Sabbatic year
    (Deut. 15:1-15).
      For other laws bearing on this relation see Lev. 25:14, 32,
    39; Matt. 18:25, 34.
      (4.) A surety was liable in the same way as the original
    debtor (Prov. 11:15; 17:18).
