Like a bird that strays from its nest
    is a man who strays from his home.

Perfume and incense make the heart glad,
    [also] friendship sweet with advice from the heart.

10 Don’t abandon a friend
    who is also a friend of your father.

Don’t enter your brother’s house on the day of your calamity —
    better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
