A Friend Who Sticks Closer than a Brother

A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 NKJV

There's some disagreement over how the first part of that verse should be translated.

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. ESV

A man of too many friends comes to ruin, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. NASB

A man with many friends may be harmed, but there is a friend who stays closer than a brother. HCSB

However, all agree on the last phrase - there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. That friend is Jesus.
