Chapter 50 (Angel Falling Softly)

"Blood is thicker than water" was originally a German proverb ("Blut ist dicker als Wasser") that first appeared in print during the 12th century.

1 Samuel 2:6-9 (KJV):

The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
