A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will be yet wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning.
Where no counsel [is], the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors [there is] safety.
The way of a fool [is] right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel [is] wise.
Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
[Every] purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors [there is] safety.
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so [doth] the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
