Ben Sira 6:5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

True Friendship[a]

Pleasant speech multiplies friends,
    and gracious lips, friendly greetings.

Footnotes:

  1. 6:5–17 One of several poems Ben Sira wrote on friendship; see also 9:10–16; 12:8–18; 13:1–23; 19:13–17; 22:19–26; 27:16–21. True friends are discerned not by prosperity (v. 11), but through the trials of adversity: distress, quarrels (v. 9), sorrow (v. 10) and misfortune (v. 12). Such friends are rare, a gift from God (vv. 14–17).
