Prophesy
 
I will prophesy, he comes to tell me of the players.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act II. Scene 2. (To Guildenstern.)

Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil?
        1 Kings, Chap. xxii. Ver. 18. (Ahab to Jehoshaphat.)
  2
Prophet of ill! thou never speak’st to me
But words of evil omen; for thy soul
Delights to augur ill, but aught of good
Thou never yet hast promised, nor performed.
        Homer.—The Iliad, Book I. Line 124. (Agamemnon to Chalcas.)
