    go forth

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what "go forth" means in the following sentence:

    Be brave about going forth with new ventures.

    Does "go forth" mean undertake, begin?

    Re: go forth

    Hello K.,

    "To go forth" is an archaic expression, now used mostly for jocular or quasi-evangelical effect, with the meaning "to go out into the world".

    Thus when you "go forth with a new venture", you make it public in an unequivocal way.

    Best wishes,

    MrP
