Proverbs 27:10; Proverbs 27:22; Proverbs 27:27
Never abandon a friend— either yours or your father’s. When disaster strikes, you won’t have to ask your brother for assistance. It’s better to go to a neighbor than to a brother 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 yourself, your family, and your servant girls.
