Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.
Read Proverbs 27:6 Using Other Translations
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.
