My Webster says the first is "lent" as lending things.  The second word 
translated even in JPS as lent is "borrowed" in the Webster.  Of course lots 
of scholars don't like the New World edition but it sure seems folksy to me 
and gives the spin that I think is realistically early Israelite.  I prefer 
it to read as "lent" and "borrowed" because I think that's how emphasis is 
preserved so there's no doubt in what the author is saying and it is poetic. 
I love reading it this way:)  It's so passionate.
