Like a bird that strays far from its nest,
    so is a person who forsakes his own home.

The heart is delighted by the fragrance of oil and sweet perfumes,
    and in just the same way, the soul is sweetened by the wise counsel of a friend.
10 Do not neglect your friend or your parent’s friend for that matter.
    When hard times come, you don’t have to travel far to get help from family;
A neighbor who is near is better
    than a brother who is far away.
