Proverbs 27:10; Proverbs 27:22; Proverbs 27:27 (New American Standard)
Do not forsake your own friend or your father's friend, And do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity; Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother far away.
Though you pound a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain, Yet his foolishness will not depart from him.
And there will be goats' milk enough for your food, For the food of your household, And sustenance for your maidens.
