As a bird that wandereth from her nest,
so is a man that wandereth from his place.

Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart:
so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.

10 Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not;
neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity:
for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.
