  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Dehort  \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.  [Obs.] 
 
  The  apostles  vehemently  dehort  us  from  unbelief.  --Bp. 
  Ward. 
 
  ``Exhort''  remains,  but  dehort,  a  word  whose  place 
  neither  ``dissuade''  nor  any  other  exactly  supplies, 
  has  escaped  us  --Trench.
