Basically all verbs that start with för- are actually German loanwords, borrowed during the middle ages due to the immense influence of German traders dominating the economy in northern Europe.

It's also similar to the Dutch 'verklaren'.

Folklore often explained things that were beyond the comprehension of the time.
