Proverbs 27:10; Proverbs 27:22; Proverbs 27:27
Never abandon a friend -- either yours or your father's. Then in your time of need, you won't have to ask your relatives for assistance. It is better to go to a neighbor than to a relative who lives far away.
You cannot separate fools from their foolishness, even though you grind them like grain with mortar and pestle.
And you will have enough goats' milk for you, your family, and your servants.
