New friends (Sir 9:10-9:10)

“Do not abandon old friends.

The new ones cannot equal them.

A new friend is like new wine.

When it has aged,

You can drink it with pleasure.”

You should not abandon old friends, because the new ones will never be the same. A new friend is like wine. It needs time to age so that you can drink it with pleasure.
