Proverbs 27:8-10 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

Like a bird that strays from its nest,
    is a man who strays from his home.
Oil and perfume make the heart glad,
    but the soul is torn by trouble.[a]
10 Your friend, and your father’s friend, do not forsake;
    and do not go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity.
Better is a neighbor who is near
    than a brother who is far away.
