Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1106 Greek: gnome

Advice, Advise:

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

(1) a view, judgment, opinion, 1Cr 1:10; Phm 1:14; Rev 17:13,17;

(2) an opinion as to what ought to be done, either

(a) by oneself, and so a resolve, or purpose, Act 20:3; or

(b) by others, and so, judgment, advice, 1Cr 7:25, 40; 2Cr 8:10.

2 Strong's Number: g1012 Greek: boule

Advice, Advise:

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 Act 27:12, "advised," lit., "gave counsel." In Act 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 Luk 7:30; Act 2:23; 4:28; 13:36; 20:27; Eph 1:11; Hbr 6:17; in other passages, of the counsel of men, Luk 23:51; Act 27:12, 42; 1Cr 4:5.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
