9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 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.
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, 12 (NIV)
