New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11:26 they prophesied. The Holy Spirit empowered these men to “prophesy” just as He had Moses (Numbers 11:17). However, to prophesy does not necessarily mean to predict the future, even though this could be involved on occasion. Rather, it meant essentially, to speak the words given by God under divine inspiration. See II Peter 1:20.
