2. (v. i.) To utter predictions.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

for-tel', for-told': The King James Version occurrences of these words in the New Testament represent as many Greek terms, and are in each case rendered differently in Revised Version:

(1) Mark 13:23 (proeipon), the Revised Version (British and American) "told beforehand";

(2) Acts 3:24 (prokataggello), the Revised Version (British and American) simply "told";

(3) 2 Corinthians 13:2 (prolego), the Revised Version (British and American) "said beforehand," margin "plainly"; compare 1 Thessalonians 3:4.

The foretelling of future events is claimed in the Old Testament as a prerogative of Yahweh (Isaiah 41:22, 23; Isaiah 42:9, etc.; compare Deuteronomy 18:22).

I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare:

And who, as I, can proclaim--let him declare it, and set it in order for Me--since I appointed the ancient people? And the things that are coming, and that shall come to pass, let them declare.
(See NIV)

Have no fear, be strong in heart; have I not made it clear to you in the past, and let you see it? and you are my witnesses. Is there any God but me, or a Rock of whom I have no knowledge?
