(11) Prophesied.--Nibb?'im, "were prophesying." Vulg., "prophetabant." In 2Chronicles 18:9 the synonym mith-nabbe'im was used, which also signifies "mad, raving" Jeremiah 29:26). The root meaning of this word is probably visible in the Assyrian nab-, "to call, proclaim," so that the n?bi, or prophet, was the ???????? or spokesman of God, the herald of heaven to earth. (Comp. the name of the god Nebo, Nabi'um, who answers in the Babylonian Pantheon to the Greek Hermes.)

And prosper--i.e., and thou shalt prosper. So LXX., ??? ?????????. Vuig., "prosperaberis." (Comp. "This do, and live;" and Genesis 20:7, "he shall pray for thee, and live thou!")

For.--And.
