De*hort" (?), v. t. [imp. & p. p. Dehorted; p. pr. & vb. n. Dehorting.] [L. dehortari; de- + hortari to urge, exhort.]
To urge to abstain or refrain; to dissuade.
The apostles vehemently dehort us from unbelief.
"Exhort" remains, but dehort, a word whose place neither "dissuade" nor any other exactly supplies, has escaped us.
