Advice, Advise - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Advice, Advise

[ 1,,G1106, gnome ]
connected with ginosko, to know, perceive," firstly means "the faculty or knowledge, reason;" then, "that which is thought or known, one's mind." Under this heading there are various meanings:

(1) a view, judgment, opinion, 1 Corinthians 1:10; Philemon 1:14; Revelation 17:13, Revelation 17:17;

(2) an opinion as to what ought to be done, either
(a) by oneself, and so a resolve, or purpose, Acts 20:3; or
(b) by others, and so, judgment, advice, 1 Corinthians 7:25, 1 Corinthians 7:40; 2 Corinthians 8:10. See AGREE, JUDGMENT, MIND, PURPOSE, WILL.

[ 2,,G1012, boule ]
from a root meaning "a will," hence "a counsel, a piece of advice," is to be distinguished from gnome; boule is the result of determination, gnome is the result of knowledge. Boule is everywhere rendered by "counsel" in the RV except in Acts 27:12, "advised," lit., "gave counsel." In Acts 13:36 the AV wrongly has "by the will of God fell on sleep;" the RV, "after he had served the counsel of God, fell on sleep." The word is used of the counsel of God, in Luke 7:30; Acts 2:23; Acts 4:28; Acts 13:36; Acts 20:27; Ephesians 1:11; Hebrews 6:17; in other passages, of the counsel of men, Luke 23:51; Acts 27:12, Acts 27:42; 1 Corinthians 4:5. See COUNSEL, WILL.
