19 Bible Verses about Friendship - ESV

English Standard Version (ESV)
Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity.
Whoever covers an offense seeks love,
but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.
A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Behold, how good and pleasant it is
when brothers dwell in unity!
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
He who withholds kindness from a friend
forsakes the fear of the Almighty.
And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
Iron sharpens iron,
and one man sharpens another.
A dishonest man spreads strife,
and a whisperer separates close friends.
You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.
Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
God settles the solitary in a home;
he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,
but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith, both yours and mine.
Do not forsake your friend and your father's friend,
and do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity.
Better is a neighbor who is near
than a brother who is far away.
