Prophecy, Prophesize, Prophesy

A prophecy is a prediction.

When prophets make prophecies, they prophesy, not "prophesize."

It will be a crowning achievement, prophesized its chief engineer. Lose that z and make it prophesied. It is doubtful you could find any dictionary anywhere that lists "prophesize." Even the nonjudgmental Webster's New World College Dictionary shuns this common (mis)usage.
