FRIENDSHIP Taken from the HOLY BIBLE: NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (C) 1978
PRO 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. 18:24 A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. 22:24 Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered, 27:6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. 9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel. 10 Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother's house when disaster strikes you-- better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away. 17 As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. ECC 4:9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. AMO 3:3 Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so? JOH 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
