(קוֹל, רַנָּה, etc., or some form of שָׁמִע, as in 1 Kings 15:22; Jeremiah 1, 29), the edict of any governing power, published in a solemn manner. The laws of Moses, as well as the temporary edicts of Joshua, were communicated to the people by means of the genealogists, or "officers," as in the English version; but the laws and edicts of those who subsequently held the office of kings were proclaimed publicly by criers (Jeremiah 34:8-9; Jonah 3, 5-7), a class of persons mentioned by Daniel (3, 4; 5:29), under the word כְּרוֹזָא, keroza, which our translators have rendered "herald" (q.v.).
