6 Faithful are the 1wounds of a friend, But deceitful are the 2kisses of an enemy.
8 Like a 3bird that wanders from her nest, So is a man who 4wanders from his home.
9 5Oil and perfume make the heart glad, So a man's counsel is sweet to his friend.
10 Do not forsake your own 6friend or 7your 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.
11 8Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, That I may 9reply * to him who reproaches me.
12 A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, The naive proceed and pay the penalty.
13 10Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger; And for an adulterous woman hold him in pledge.
14 11He who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, It will be reckoned a curse to him.
16 He who would restrain her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand.
