Against such cruelties, with inward consolations recompensd.

We have great joy and consolation in thy love. Phile 7.

2. That which comforts, or refreshes the spirits; the cause of comfort; as the consolation of Israel. Luke 2:25.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Consolation of Israel

A name for the Messiah in common use among the Jews, probably suggested by Isaiah 12:1; 49:13. The Greek word thus rendered (Luke 2:25, paraklesis) is kindred to that translated "Comforter" in John 14:16, etc., parakletos.
