Astrologer

( Daniel 1:20 ; Daniel 2:2 Daniel 2:10 Daniel 2:27 , etc.) Heb. 'ashshaph', an enchanter, one who professes to divine future events by the appearance of the stars. This science flourished among the Chaldeans. It was positively forbidden to the Jews ( Deuteronomy 4:19 ; 18:10 ; Isaiah 47:13 ).
