ἐξάγγελλε, “"publish,"”—with bitter irony, since the son dares not tell it even to a bosom-friend: see 1402.—The word was used esp. of traitors who carried news out of a city or camp to the enemy (cp. n. on O. T. 1223).—“καὶ πᾶσι”, e'en to all. (“καί...τε” could not stand for “τε... καί” as “"both"”—“"and"”: cp. O. T. 347 n.)
