Proverbs 18:24

24 Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.

Proverbs 18:24 In-Context

22 Find a good spouse, you find a good life - and even more: the favor of God!
23 The poor speak in soft supplications; the rich bark out answers.
24 Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.
