BROTHERLY

bruth'-er-li ('ach, "brother"; philadelphia, "brotherly love"):

Like a brother in all the large human relationships indicated above; e.g. the early friendly and fraternal alliance between Tyre and Israel as illustrated by "brotherly covenant" between David and Solomon, and Hiram, king of Tyre (2 Samuel 5:11; 1 Kings 5:12), and repudiated in a later generation by the treachery of Tyre (Amos 1:9).
