Anyone who runs away from home
    is like a bird that flies away from its nest.

Perfume and incense bring joy to your heart.
    And the sweetness of a friend comes from their honest advice.

10 Don’t desert your friend or a friend of your family.
    And don’t go to your relative’s house when trouble strikes you.
    A neighbor nearby is better than a relative far away.
