2 Timothy 4:16
At my first answer no man stood with me, but all [men] forsook me: [I pray God] that it may not be laid to their charge.
Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and [so] hate thee.
If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from under thee?
Be not thou [one] of them that strike hands, [or] of them that are sureties for debts.
Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
A man [that hath] friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother.
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth [very] friends.
A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, [and] mine acquaintance into darkness.
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble [is like] a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
Faithful [are] the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy [are] deceitful.
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm [alone]?
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him [that is] alone when he falleth; for [he hath] not another to help him up.
Two [are] better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
As in water face [answereth] to face, so the heart of man to man.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him.
Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: [for] better [is] a neighbour [that is] near than a brother far off.
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so [doth] the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: [I am] shut up, and I cannot come forth.
We took sweet counsel together, [and] walked unto the house of God in company.
They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.
My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.
He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.
My friends scorn me: [but] mine eye poureth out [tears] unto God.
I have heard many such things: miserable comforters [are] ye all.
My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, [and] as the stream of brooks they pass away;
To him that is afflicted pity [should be shewed] from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:
[Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth;
I called my servant, and he gave [me] no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.
My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's [sake] of mine own body.
But [it was] thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
For [it was] not an enemy [that] reproached me; then I could have borne [it]: neither [was it] he that hated me [that] did magnify [himself] against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me.
I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or] brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother.
But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was] sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.
My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.
Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.
If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which [is] as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;
