Ecclesiastes 4:11

11 Two in a bed warm each other. Alone, you shiver all night.

Ecclesiastes 4:11 In-Context

9 It's better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth.
10 And if one falls down, the other helps, But if there's no one to help, tough!
11 Two in a bed warm each other. Alone, you shiver all night.
12 By yourself you're unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn't easily snapped.
13 A poor youngster with some wisdom is better off than an old but foolish king who doesn't know which end is up.
