Counsellor (usually יוֹעֵוֹ, yoets', σύμβουλος), an adviser upon any matter (Pr 11:14; Pr 15:22; 2Ch 25:16; Ezr 4:5, etc.; Ro 11:34), especially the king's state counselor (2Sa 15:12; Ezr 7:28; 1Ch 27:33, etc.); hence one of the chief men of a government (Job 3:14; Job 12:17; Isa 1:26; Isa 3:3, ebc.), and once of the Messiah (Isa 9:5; Sept. σύμβουλος, Vulg. consiliarius). The Chaldee equivalent term is יָעֵט (yaet', Ezr 7:14-15). Other Chaldee terms thus rendered are הִדָּברַין (haddaberin'), ministers of state or viziers (Da 3:24,27; Da 4:36; Da 6:7), and דּתָבָר (dethabar', one skilled in law), a judge (Da 3:2-3). In the Apocrypha, σύμβουλος, in the ordinary sense of adviser, is thus rendered (Wisdom of Song 8:9; Ecclesiasticus 6:6; 37:7, 8; 42:21); also συμβουλευτής (1 Esdras 8:11). In Mr 15:43; Lu 23:50, the Greek term βουλευτής, which is thus translated, probably designates a member of the Jewish Sanhedrim (q.v.) SEE COUNCIL.
