Like a (A)bird that wanders from her nest,
So is a man who (B)wanders from his [a]home.
(C)Oil and perfume make the heart glad,
So a [b]man’s counsel is sweet to his friend.
10 Do not forsake your own (D)friend or (E)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 far away.
