Proverbs 24:6

[ <1 minutes to read ]

For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war; and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.
– Proverbs 24:6

[T]he word for counsel means steerage and is put for guidance. The word for safety means rescue, or deliverance. It is most often translated “salvation.” Receiving wise counsel is part of being wise, or walking in the way of wisdom (Proverbs 11:14; 15:22; 20:18). This saying highlights the alien nature of wisdom, which we must receive through varying channels. It is not a leaning on our own hearts, but a leaning on the Lord (Proverbs 3:5-6).
