19 Bible Verses about Friendship

« Proverbs 17:17 »
A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Whoever would foster love covers over an offense,
but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity!
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
A perverse person stirs up conflict,
and a gossip separates close friends.
And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend
forsakes the fear of the Almighty.
As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another.
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor.
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family,
and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you—
better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.
I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.
‘Honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’
God sets the lonely in families,
he leads out the prisoners with singing;
but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
