Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 669: ἀποφθέγγομαι

ἀποφθέγγομαι; 1 aorist ἀπεφθεγξαμην; to speak out, speak forth, pronounce, not a word of everyday speech, but one "belonging to dignified and elevated discourse, like the Latinprofari,pronuntiare; properly it has the force of to utter or declare oneself, give one's opinion (einenAusspruchthun), and is used not only of prophets (see Kypke on Acts 2:4 — adding from the Sept. Ezekiel 13:9; Micah 5:12; 1 Chronicles 25:1), but also of wise men and philosophers (Diag. Laërtius 1, 63; 73; 79; whose pointed sayings the Greeks call ἀποφθέγματα, Cicero, off. 1, 29)"; (see φθέγγομαι). Accordingly, "it is used of the utterances of the Christians, and especially Peter, on that illustrious day of Pentecost after they had been fired by the Holy Spirit, Acts 2:4, 14; and also of the disclosures made by Paul to (before) king Agrippa concerning the ἀποκάλυψις κυρίου that had been given him, Acts 26:25." Winer's De verb. comp. etc. Part iv., p. 16.
