||New International Version (NIV)
7 All a poor man's brothers hate him; how much more do his friends go far from him! He pursues them with words, but does not have them.
7 A poor man is shunned by all his relatives-- how much more do his friends avoid him! Though he pursues them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found.
