עֵצָה Strong’s #6098 eytsah

With God is wisdom and might; He hath counsel and understanding.

Job 12:13

The word eytsah, meaning counsel, is the feminine form of the masculine word eyts (Strongs #6086) meaning “a tree.” Counsel is the giving of advice, encouragement or guidance. Within the family or the community this would be from an elder, one filled with years of wisdom and experience. In the Hebrew mind this elder or counselor and his counsel are seen as support to the community in the same way that the trunk of a tree supports the branches of the tree.
