Ecclesiasticus 6:8

“For some man is a friend for his owne occasion, and will not abide in the day of thy trouble.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 6:8

5. Sweet language will multiply friends: and a faire speaking tongue will increase kinde greetings. 6. Be in peace with many: neuerthelesse haue but one counseller of a thousand. 7. If thou wouldst get a friend, proue him first, and be not hasty to credit him. 8. For some man is a friend for his owne occasion, and will not abide in the day of thy trouble. 9. And there is a friend, who being turned to enmitie, and strife, will discouer thy reproch. 10. Againe some friend is a companion at the table, and will not continue in the day of thy affliction. 11. But in thy prosperitie hee will be as thy selfe, and will be bould ouer thy seruants.
