Exhortation:

ek-sor-ta'-shun (paraklesis): The Greek word translated "exhortation" (paraklesis) signifies, originally, "a calling near or for" (as an advocate or helper who should appeal on one's behalf), and carries the twofold sense of "exhortation" and "CONSOLATION" (which see). In the Septuagint of the Old Testament it is used in the sense of "consolation"; but in #/APC 2Macc 7:24, it is translated "exhort," the Revised Version (British and American) "appeal." The verb parakaleo is also translated "exhortation" (1 Macc 13:3 the King James Version) and "exhort" (#/APC 2Macc 9:26). In the New Testament paraklesis is translated "exhortation" (Ac 13:15; Ro 12:8, the Revised Version (British and American) "exhorting"; 1Co 14:3, the English Revised Version "comfort," the American Revised Version, margin "or comfort"; 2Co 8:17; 1Th 2:3; 1Ti 4:13; Heb 12:5; 13:22). the American Standard Revised Version has also "exhortation," instead of "consolation" in Php 2:1. In Lu 3:18, parakaleo, "to call near or for," is translated "exhortation," "and many other things in his exhortation," the Revised Version (British and American) "with many other exhortations," and in Ac 20:2, parakaleo logo pollo is rendered (the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American)), "had given them much exhortation."

Written by W. L. Walker

King James Dictionary

Exhortation: Encouragement.

For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and EXHORTATION, and comfort. (1 Corinthians 14:2-3)
