Easton's Bible Dictionary

Soothsayer:

one who pretends to prognosticate future events. Baalam is so called (Jos 13:22; rendered 1Sa 6:2; Isa 3:2). In Isa 2:6 and Mic 5:12 (Heb. yonenim, i.e., "diviners of the clouds") the word is used of the Chaldean diviners who studied the clouds. In Dan 2:27; 5:7 the word is the rendering of the Chaldee gazrin, i.e., "deciders" or "determiners", here applied to Chaldean astrologers, "who, by casting nativities from the place of the stars at one's birth, and by various arts of computing and divining, foretold the fortunes and destinies of individuals.", Gesenius, Lex. Heb. (See SORCERER.)

King James Dictionary

Soothsayer: A Foreteller of the Future by Astrology.

Therefore made I a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they might make known unto me the interpretation of the dream. Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the SOOTHSAYERS: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof. (Daniel 4:6-7)

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Soothsayer:

SEE [DIVINATION].
