Proverbs 27:10; Proverbs 27:22; Proverbs 27:27 (New International Version)
Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother's house when disaster strikes you-- better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
Though you grind a fool in a mortar, grinding him like grain with a pestle, you will not remove his folly from him.
You will have plenty of goats' milk to feed you and your family and to nourish your servant girls.
