Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.
Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed.
Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many counselors bring success.
Refuse good advice and watch your plans fail; take good counsel and watch them succeed.
Where there are no wise suggestions, purposes come to nothing; but by a number of wise guides they are made certain.
Without counsel, plans go wrong, but with many advisers they succeed.
Without counsel, plans go awry, But in the multitude of counselors they are established.

1 tn Heb “go wrong” (so NRSV, NLT). The verb is the Hiphil infinitive absolute from פָּרַר, parar, which means “to break; to frustrate; to go wrong” (HALOT 975 s.v. I פרר 2). The plans are made ineffectual or are frustrated when there is insufficient counsel.
2 sn The proverb says essentially the same thing as 11:14, but differently.
