4 Wealth adds many friends, but the poor are left friendless.(A)
7 All the kin of the poor despise them; how much more do their friends shun them![a]
8 For there are friends when it suits them, but they will not be around in time of trouble.
12 If disaster comes upon you, they turn against you and hide themselves.
