Like a bird that wanders from her nest [with its comfort and safety],
So is a man who wanders from his home.
Oil and perfume make the heart glad;
So does the sweetness of a friend’s counsel that comes from the heart.
Do not abandon your own friend and your father’s friend,
And do not go to your brother’s house in the day of your disaster.
Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother who is far away.
