Proverbs 11:14; Proverbs 15:22; Proverbs 20:18; Proverbs 24:5–6; Proverbs 27:9

14  Where there is sno guidance, a people falls,

sbut in an abundance of counselors there is safety.

22  nWithout counsel plans fail,

but with many advisers they succeed.

18  bPlans are established by counsel;

by cwise guidance dwage war.

aA wise man is full of strength,

and a man of knowledge enhances his might,

for by bwise guidance you can wage your war,

and in cabundance of counselors there is victory.

gOil and perfume make the heart glad,

and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel.1
