Friendship vs Brothers and/or Sisters ( See Note Below)

bible.com/bible/100/pro.17.17.NASB1995

Note of explanation: The difference between a friend and brother is noted here. A true friend is a constant source of love, while a brother in one’s family may not be close, but is drawn near to help in trouble. Friends are closer than brothers because they are available all the time, not just in the crisis. Cf. 18:24.
