“He who finds a wife
He obtains favor from Yahweh.
The poor use entreaties.
But the rich answer roughly.
Some friends play at friendship.
But a true friend sticks closer
Than one’s nearest relative.”
You will be happy if you find a good wife. Yahweh will favor you. Even though the poor use entreaties to beg, the rich usually answer roughly. Some people play at friendship, but a true friend stays closer to you than your own relatives.
