Proverbs 17:17; Proverbs 19:22; Proverbs 20:6; Proverbs 20:28; Proverbs 21:21; Proverbs 27:6; Proverbs 27:10

17  kA friend loves at all times,

and a brother is born for adversity.


22  What is desired in a man is steadfast love,

and a poor man is better than a liar.


Many a man hproclaims his own steadfast love,

but ia faithful man who can find?


28  uSteadfast love and faithfulness preserve the king,

and by steadfast love his vthrone is upheld.


21  Whoever zpursues righteousness and kindness

will find alife, righteousness, and honor.


Faithful are dthe wounds of a friend;

profuse are the kisses of an enemy.


10  Do not forsake your friend and hyour father's friend,

and do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity.

iBetter is a neighbor who is near

than a brother who is far away.
