17 A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity.
6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend;
profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
10 Do not forsake your friend and your father's friend,
and do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity.
Better is a neighbor who is near
than a brother who is far away.
20 Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
17 Iron sharpens iron,
and one man sharpens another.
26 One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor,
but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
24 Make no friendship with a man given to anger,
nor go with a wrathful man,
25 lest you learn his ways
and entangle yourself in a snare.
