STRONGS NT 669: ἀποφθέγγομαι
ἀποφθέγγομαι; 1 aorist ἀπεφθεγξάμην; to speak out, speak forth, pronounce, not a word of everyday speech, but one "belonging to dignified and elevated discourse, like the Latin profari, pronuntiare; properly it has the force of to utter or declare oneself, give one's opinion (einen Ausspruch thun), 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 (Diogenes 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.
