PROV 27:9 Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; So doth the sweetness of a man's friend `that cometh' of hearty counsel.
PROV 27:10 Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; And go not to thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: Better is a neighbor that is near than a brother far off.
PROV 27:11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, That I may answer him that reproacheth me.
PROV 27:12 A prudent man seeth the evil, `and' hideth himself; `But' the simple pass on, `and' suffer for it.

PROV 27:14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, It shall be counted a curse to him.

PROV 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; So a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
PROV 27:18 Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; And he that regardeth his master shall be honored.
PROV 27:19 As in water face `answereth' to face, So the heart of man to man.
PROV 27:20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied; And the eyes of man are never satisfied.
PROV 27:21 The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; And a man is `tried' by his praise.
PROV 27:22 Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with bruised grain, Yet will not his foolishness depart from him.
PROV 27:23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, `And' look well to thy herds:
PROV 27:24 For riches are not for ever: And doth the crown endure unto all generations?
PROV 27:25 The hay is carried, and the tender grass showeth itself, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in.
PROV 27:26 The lambs are for thy clothing, And the goats are the price of the field;
PROV 27:27 And `there will be' goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, And maintenance for thy maidens.
