Advice; Advise; Advisement

Resource Toolbox

ad -vı̄s ´, ad -vı̄z ´, ad -vı̄z´ment : Aside from their regular meaning these words are peculiarly employed as follows: (1) Advice: In 2 Samuel 19:43 (from, דּהר , dābhār , "word") the meaning is equal to "request" (the Revised Version, margin "were we not the first to speak of bringing back"). In 1 Samuel 25:33 the King James Version (from, טעם , ṭa‛am , "taste," "reason") "advice" is equal to "sagacity" (the Revised Version (British and American) "blessed be thy discretion"). In 2 Chronicles 25:17 (from יעץ , yā‛ac , "to give or take counsel") the meaning seems to be "to consult with oneself"; compare also Judges 19:30 the King James Version (the Revised Version (British and American) "take counsel"). (2) Advise: In 2 Samuel 24:13 the King James Version (from ידע , yādha‛ , "to know") "to advise" means "to advise oneself," i.e. "to consider" (the Revised Version (British and American) "advise thee") Compare also 1 Chronicles 21:12 the King James Version (the Revised Version (British and American) "consider" from, ראה , rā'āh , "to see") and Proverbs 13:10 where "well-advised" is the same as "considerate" (from יעץ , yā‛ac ; see 2 Chronicles 25:17 ). (3) Advisement (antiquated): Found once in the Old Testament in 1 Chronicles 12:19 (from עצה , ‛ēcāh , "counsel"), where "upon advisement" means "upon deliberation." Compare 2 Macc 14:20 the King James Version (the Revised Version (British and American) "when these proposals had been long considered").
