Proverbs 12:26

The righteous is a guide to his neighbor,
But the way of the wicked makes them wander about.

Proverbs 13:20

He who walks with the wise will be wise,
But the friend of fools will suffer harm.

Proverbs 14:7

Leave the presence of a fool,
As you have not known lips of knowledge there.

Proverbs 17:17

A friend loves at all times,
And a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 18:24

A man of too many friends comes to ruin,
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 24:1 - 24:2

My Son, Fear Yahweh

Do not be jealous of evil men,
And do not desire to be with them;
For their heart meditates on destruction,
And their lips talk of mischief.

Proverbs 25:16 - 25:17

Have you found honey? Eat only enough for you,
Lest you have more than your fill and vomit it.
Let your foot rarely be in your neighbor’s house,
Lest he have more than his fill of you and hate you.

Proverbs 27:8 - 27:10

Like a bird that wanders from her nest,
So is a man who wanders from his place.
Oil and incense make the heart glad,
So counsel from the soul is sweet to his friend.
Do not forsake your friend or your father’s friend,
And do not come to your brother’s house in the day of your disaster;
Better is one who dwells near than a brother far away.

Proverbs 29:24

He who divides the spoil with a thief hates his own soul;
He hears the oath but declares nothing.
