“Euery counseller extolleth counsell; but there is some that counselleth for himselfe.”
King James Version (KJV)
4. There is a companion, which reioyceth in the prosperity of a friend: but in the time of trouble will be against him. 5. There is a companion which helpeth his friend for the belly, and taketh vp the buckler against the enemie. 6. Forget not thy friend in thy minde, and be not vnmindfull of him in thy riches. 7. Euery counseller extolleth counsell; but there is some that counselleth for himselfe. 8. Beware of a counseller, and know before what neede he hath (for he will counsell for himselfe) lest hee cast the lot vpon thee: 9. And say vnto thee, Thy way is good: and afterward he stand on the other side, to see what shall befall thee. 10. Consult not with one that suspecteth thee: and hide thy counsell from such as enuie thee.
