Meaning enjoins, commands, directs.[1]
"And [he] gives orders for the departure for Italy."[2]
And elsewhere: "the emperor kindly receives him, and tells him to be of good courage, and if he should want something to order it" (meaning to ask for it) "and he pleaded on behalf of Vonones, son of Phraates, who had been confined in darkness for 30 years."[3]

Greek Original:
Ἐπαγγέλλει: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπιτάσσει, ἐντέλλεται, διακελεύεται. ἐπαγγέλλει τε τὴν ἐπὶ Ἰταλίας ἔξοδον. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς φιλοφρόνως δέχεται αὐτόν, καὶ κελεύει θαρρεῖν, καὶ εἴ τι θέλοι ἐπαγγέλλειν. [ἀντὶ τοῦ αἰτεῖσθαι.] ὁ δὲ δεῖται ὑπὲρ Βονώνου τοῦ Πραάτου, ὃς ἦν λ# ἔτη ἐν σκότῳ καθειργμένος. καὶ αὖθις Ἐπαγγέλλοντος, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπιτάσσοντος. εἰθισμένον δὲ ὂν γράμματα οἰκεῖα τοῖς βιβλίοις ἐντιθέναι τὸν βασιλέα, ὅσα ἂν ἐπαγγέλλοντος αὐτοῦ γένοιτο, Ἰουστῖνος ὁ βασιλεὺς οὔτε ἐπήγγειλεν οὔτε τοῖς πραττομένοις ξυνεπίστασθαι οἷός τε ἦν. ἐν τῷ σπηλαίῳ καθειργμένος ὁ Δαβὶδ καὶ τοὺς πολεμίους ὁρῶν τὸν θεῖον ἔλεον ἐπαγγέλλει, ἐλέησόν με, ὁ θεός, ἐλέησόν με.
