'Do Not Forsake' in the Bible
Listen, my child, to the instruction from your father, and do not forsake the teaching from your mother.
For I give you good doctrine [what is to be received]; do not forsake my teaching.
Do not forsake her--then she will guard you; love her and she will keep you.
My child, guard the commands of your father and do not forsake the instruction of your mother.
As for your friend and a friend of your father, do not forsake [them], and the house of your brother, do not enter on the day of your calamity. Better is a close neighbor than a distant brother.
