Bible

The Bible, the primary text of the western civilization, reflects upon friendship
as the bond that forms the foundation to human faith, trust and companionship.
Following verses from the bible aptly portray the importance of friends:

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will
be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7

“Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
John 15:13-15

Besides, there are several tales from the Old Testament and the New Testament about
the value of friendship and how true friendship is a treasure to unearth. A
noticeable point is that, both the versions make a difference between the two
broad meanings of friendship- one is a mere acquaintance, the other is a more
affectionate relation.

In the Old Testament, Abraham is called the “friend of God” because of the intimacy
of his relations. God speaks to Moses face to face “as a man…into his friend”
(Ex 33:11). The romantic friendship of Ruth and Naomi, the devotion of the
subordinate Hushai for David, or the mutual relation between David and
Jonathan - the Old Testament is replete with these interesting tales of
friends and friendship.

In the New Testament, the relationship between Jesus and his disciples clearly
depicts how human friendship can constantly grow. From being teacher and disciple,
to lord and servant their relationship finally grew to an unparalleled friendship.
