9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
9 Just as lotions and fragrance give sensual delight, a sweet friendship refreshes the soul.
9 Ointment and perfume delight the heart,And the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by [a]hearty counsel.
