seer

a name sometimes applied to the prophets because of the visions granted to them

It is first found in 1 Samuel 9:9. It is afterwards applied to Zadok, Gad, etc. (2 Samuel 15:27; 24:11; 1 Chronicles 9:22; 25:5; 2 Chronicles 9:29; Amos 7:12; Micah 3:7). The “sayings of the seers” (2 Chronicles 33:18-19) is rendered in the Revised King James Version “the history of Hozai” (marginal note, the seers; so the Septuagint), of whom, however, nothing is known.
