This is the first use of the word "prophet" or "prophecy" in Scripture. As the context indicates, its meaning is not primarily that of foretelling the future, but of being God's spokesman, conveying His words by divine inspiration to man (compare 2 Peter 1:19-21). God exacts strong punishment on any who harm His prophets (Psalm 105:15).
