Additional Links
One who analyzes a situation and gives advice to one who has responsibility for making a decision. Israelite kings seem to have employed counselors on a regular basis (see 2 Samuel 16:23; 1 Kings 12:6-14; 1 Chronicles 26:14; 1Chronicles 27:32,1 Chronicles 27:34; 2 Chronicles 25:16; Isaiah 1:26; Isaiah 3:3; Micah 4:9 ). God is often regarded as a counselor (Psalm 16:7; Psalm 32:8; Psalm 33:11; Psalm 73:24 ) as is His Messiah (Isaiah 9:6; Isaiah 11:2 ) and the Holy Spirit (John 14:16 ,John 14:16,14:26; John 15:26; John 16:7 ). See Advocate .
