New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised
8 Like a bird that strays from its nest
is one who strays from home.
9 Perfume and incense make the heart glad,
but the soul is torn by trouble.[a]
10 Do not forsake your friend or the friend of your parent;
do not go to the house of your kindred on the day of your calamity.
Better is a neighbour who is nearby
than kindred who are far away.
- Proverbs 27:9 Gk: Heb the sweetness of a friend is better than one’s own counsel
