English Revised Version
Where there is no counsel, purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
Webster's Bible Translation
Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established.
Proverbs 15:22 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
16 Better is little with the fear of Jahve,
Than great store and trouble therewith.
The ב in both cases the lxx rightly renders by μετά. How מהוּמה (elsewhere of wild, confused disorder, extreme discord) is meant of store and treasure, Psalm 39:7 shows: it is restless, covetous care and trouble, as the contrast of the quietness and contentment proceeding from the fear of God, the noisy, wild, stormy running and hunting about of the slave of mammon. Theodotion translates the word here, as Aquila and Symmachus elsewhere, by words which correspond (φαγέδαινα equals φάγαινα or ἀχορτασία) with the Syr. יענותא, greed or insatiability.

1 Kings 1:12
Now therefore come, let me give you advice, that you may save your own life and the life of your son Solomon.
Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
Folly is a joy to him who lacks sense, but a man of understanding walks straight ahead.
To make an apt answer is a joy to a man, and a word in season, how good it is!
Plans are established by counsel; by wise guidance wage war.
