Like a bird wandering from its nest,
so is a husband wandering from his home.

Perfume and incense make the heart glad,
but the sweetness of a friend is a fragrant forest.[a]
10 Do not abandon your friend or your father’s friend.
Do not go to a relative’s home when you are in trouble.
A neighbor living nearby is better than a relative far away.
