The one who makes deals with a stranger will suffer badly,
but the one who hates making deals is carefree. Bible see other translations

“makes deals.” The Hebrew is a cultural idiom, “hates striking,” referring to striking hands in a deal.

“carefree.” The Hebrew is “trusting,” but in this context, it means that he trusts in his life and dealings and is carefree.
