Counsellors Darkening Counsels

In the multitude of 
counsellors; safety 
abounds,
But
ln the multitude of 
enemies as counsellors;
deceit abounds.
Counsellors whose heart 
studieth destruction with 
lips uttering mischief;
Enemies clothed with 
sheep clothings as 
friends;
Friends whose tongues 
uttereth words born in 
deception.
Counsellors whose mouth 
darkeneth counsel by 
words without 
knowledge;
Enemies made 
counsellors whose looks 
appeareth friendly,
Friends whose mouth 
draweth iniquity by cords 
of vanity.
Counsellors who utter 
counsels coated in 
corruption,
Friends whose mouth 
worseneth counsel by 
words without wisdom;
Enemies whose heart 
pondereth in destruction.
Counsellors whose 
counsel are coiled in 
deception,
Friends who by 
multitudes of words 
cause you to err;
Enemies whose mouth 
captivate tender hearts.
Counsellors whose 
counsel destroy the paths 
of relationships,
Friends whose conceit 
counsel to death;
Enemies being enslaved 
seek to enslave others.
Believe not every counsel 
neither inculcate every 
word,
........... They destroy the 
heart..........
Believe not every friend 
neither heed to 
multitudes of words,
........... They enslave the 
soul............
Believe not every 
counsellor neither seek 
counsels from multitudes;
.......... They captive the 
mind...........
Which counsel shall we 
inculcate?
Which counsellors shall 
we believe?
Which counsellors shall 
we seek?
Inculcate counsels proved 
by love,
Believe counsellors 
whose counsel are 
weighed by truth and 
peace;
Seek counsellors whose 
counsel are words of life.
Who shall our counsellors 
be?
Let counsellors who are 
genuine and experienced 
be our guide;
Let counsellors who are 
higher and honest be our 
refuge.
Hope you find counsellors 
whose counsels are 
candid;
for
lt takes honest 
counsellors to ensure 
your safety.
