Proverbs 11:17; Proverbs 15:17; Proverbs 17:17; Proverbs 18:24; Proverbs 27:9 (Holman Christian Standard)
A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings disaster on himself.
Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time.
A man with many friends may be harmed, but there is a friend who stays closer than a brother.
Oil and incense bring joy to the heart, and the sweetness of a friend is better than self-counsel.
