[Meaning] to anticipate.[1]
Josephus [writes]: "as the king was vexed at having already given out their pay to the Israelites, the prophet advised him to do whatever God approved."[2]
Greek Original:
Phthênai: prolabein. Iôsêpos: dusphorountos de tou basileôs epi tôi phthênai ton misthon ekdedôkenai tois Israêlitais, parêinei poiein ho prophêtês ho ti tôi theôi dokei.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword is aorist active infinitive of fqa/nw (for which verb see also phi 475, phi 476, phi 479, phi 480, phi 486, phi 488). It is probably not extracted from the quotation given here, which the other lexica do not have; see rather Thucydides 3.89.2 and 8.92.1, with scholia to both.
