1 genuine prophet of ׳י, נביא, anciently called רֹאֶה, 1 Samuel 9:9 (antiquarian note); change probably occurred in times of Elijah and is first reflected in Ehpraimitic source literally as applied to Abraham Genesis 20:7; Moses Deuteronomy 34:10, M. and other early prophets. Hosea 6:5; Hosea 12:11 (twice in verse); Hosea 12:14 (twice in verse); Amos 2:11,12; of prophets in ecstatic state Numbers 12:6 (E), Numbers 11:24 (JE). So in Judaic literature, of prophet like Moses Deuteronomy 18:15,18 (D), of Aaron (as mouthpiece of Moses) Exodus 7:1 (P), of Samuel 1 Samuel 3:20, an unknown Judges 6:8; in time of Samuel prophets were organized in bands: חֶבֶל נביאים 1 Samuel 10:5, 10:10; ׳להקת הנ 1 Samuel 19:20; and in time of Elijah were בְּנֵי הַנְּבִיאִים = members of prophets' guilds 1 Kings 20:35; 2 Kings 2:3,5,7,15; 2 Kings 4:1,38 (twice in verse); נָבִיא of Genuine prophets (besides phrases), in Judaic prophets, only Jeremiah, Jeremiah 1:5; Ezekiel, Ezekiel 2:5 = Ezekiel 33:33; of ancient prophets Jeremiah 28:8,9 (3 t. in verse); Zechariah 1:6; Zechariah 8:9; especially הנביאים הראשׁנים Zechariah 1:4; Zechariah 7:7,12, compare הנביאים עבדי(וׅ my (his) servants the prophets 2 Kings 9:7; 2 Kings 17:13,23; 2 Kings 21:10; 2 Kings 24:2 (all RD) Ezra 9:11; Jeremiah 7:25; Jeremiah 25:4; Jeremiah 26:5; Jeremiah 29:19; Jeremiah 35:15; Jeremiah 44:4; Amos 3:7; Zechariah 1:6, compare Ezekiel 38:17; Daniel 9:6; ׳עבדוֺ הַנּ his servant the prophet 1 Kings 14:18; 2 Kings 14:25; הַנָּבִיא with proper name: Jerome, 2Chronicles 36:12; Daniel 9:2 31t.

2 false prophets: prophets as official class, beside priests, character as false prophets: Isaiah 28:7; Jeremiah 2:26; Jeremiah 4:9; Jeremiah 6:13; Jeremiah 8:1,10; Jeremiah 13:13; Jeremiah 14:18; Jeremiah 18:18; Jeremiah 23:11,33,34; Jeremiah 26:7,8,11,16; Jeremiah 32:32; Zechariah 7:3, app. also 2 Kings 23:2; Nehemiah 9:32; Lamentations 2:20; Jeremiah 29:1; Ezekiel 7:26 (in these not characterized); always false (except of ancient and special prophets given above) in Amos 7:14; Hosea 4:5; Hosea 9:7,8; Micah 3:5,6,11; Isaiah 3:2; Isaiah 9:14; Isaiah 29:10; Jeremiah 2:8,30; Jeremiah 5:13,31; Jeremiah 14:13,14,15 (twice in verse); Jeremiah 23:9 16t.

Usage of prophets themselves gives such a bad flavour to נביא, that we are not surprised that it is absent from exilic Isaiah, the Wisdom Literature, and Psalms (except for special reasons in 3 Psalms given under 1).

3 heathen prophets 1 Kings 18:20; 1 Kings 19:1; 2 Kings 3:13 (twice in verse); נביאי האשׁדה 1 Kings 18:19; נביאי הבעל 1 Kings 18:19,22,25,40; 2 Kings 10:19; 1 Kings 22:6,10,12,13,22,23 2Chron 18:5; 18:9; 18:11; 18:12; 18:21; 18:22.
