What About Your Friends?

TAKE HEED OF YOUR FRIENDS . . .

The Third Testament 39:42

How much the chosen of this time shall have to pray and keep vigilant to not fall into temptation; even so I tell you truly, that among the 144,000 . . . there shall be traitors.

Apocrypha/Ecclesiasticus, Chapter 6

Instead of a friend, become not an enemy, for thereby thou shall inherit an ill name.

(Verse 5) Sweet language will multiply friends and a fair speaking tongue will increase kind greetings.

(Verse 6) Be in peace with many, never the less, have but one counselor of a thousand.

(Verse 7) If thou would get a friend, prove him first and be not hasty to praise him.

(Eccl 11:29) Bring not every man into thy house. For the deceitful man has many traits. (Photo by Pixabay)

(Verse 8) For some men is a friend for his own occasions and will not abide in the day of trouble.

(Verse 9) And there is a friend, who being turned to enmity and strife, will discover thy reproach or disgrace.

Again, some friend is a companion at the table and will not continue in the day of thy afflictions. But in thy prosperity he will be as thyself and be bold over thy servants. If thou be brought low, he will be against thee and hide himself from thy face.

(Verse 15) Separate thyself from thy enemies and take heed of thy friends. A faithful friend is a strong security and he that has found such a one has found a treasure.

Apocrypha/Ecclesiasticus 12:8,9

A FRIEND CANNOT BE KNOWN IN PROSPERITY AND AN ENEMY CANNOT BE HID IN ADVERSITY.

(IN THE PROSPERITY OF A MAN ENEMIES WILL BE GRIEVED.)

John 15:13-15

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

  2. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be exciting to read content from other authors and use a little something from their websites.

    1. Blossom,
      I have found that writing is about “re-writing” and learning from those who have gone before us. We learn from one another. Sharing is the key. Knowledge is free to those who seek. May you study well in your endeavors.
