Proverbs 27:10

10 Don't desert your friend or your father's friend. And don't go to your family when trouble strikes you. A neighbor nearby is better than a family member far away.

Proverbs 27:10 In-Context

8 A man who wanders away from his home is like a bird that wanders from its nest.
9 Perfume and incense bring joy to your heart. And a friend is sweeter when he gives you honest advice.
10 Don't desert your friend or your father's friend. And don't go to your family when trouble strikes you. A neighbor nearby is better than a family member far away.
11 My child, be wise and bring joy to my heart. Then I can answer anyone who makes fun of me.
12 Wise people see danger and go to a safe place. But childish people keep on going and suffer for it.
