Proverbs 27:9-19 DBY

9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart; and the sweetness of one's friend is [the fruit] of hearty counsel.
10 Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; and go not into thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.
11 Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me.
12 A prudent [man] seeth the evil, [and] hideth himself; the simple pass on, [and] are punished.
13 Take his garment that is become surety [for] another, and hold him in pledge for a strange woman.
14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be reckoned a curse to him.
15 A continual dropping on a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike:
16 whosoever will restrain her restraineth the wind, and his right hand encountereth oil.
17 Iron is sharpened by iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
18 Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; and he that guardeth a his master shall be honoured.
