G5920
To Ask. See Definition for aiteo { [G154]}
See Definition for erotao { [G2065]}

Thayer, as opposed to Trench and others, would make the distinction
between these two words to be this: ``aiteo signifies to ask for
something to be given, not done, giving prominence to the thing asked
for rather than the person, and hence is rarely used in exhortation.
erotao, on the other hand, is to request a person to do (rarely to
give) something? referring more directly to the person, it is naturally
used in exhortation, etc.''

G4441 πυνθάνομαι

πυνθάνομαι
punthanomai
poon-than'-om-ahee
Middle voice prolonged from πύθω puthō , a primary word, (which occurs only as an alternate in certain tenses); to question, that is, ascertain by inquiry (as a matter of information merely; and thus differing from G2065, which properly means a request as a favor; and from G154, which is strictly a demand of something due; as well as from G2212, which implies a search for something hidden; and from G1189, which involves the idea of urgent need); by implication to learn (by casual intelligence)

KJV Usage: ask, demand, enquire, understand.


G1189 δέομαι
δέομαι
deomai
deh'-om-ahee
Middle voice of G1210; to beg (as binding oneself), that is, petition

KJV Usage: beseech, pray (to), make request.

Compare G4441.

G2065 ἐρωτάω
ἐρωτάω
erōtaō
er-o-tah'-o
Apparently from G2046 (compare G2045); to interrogate; by implication to request

KJV Usage: ask, beseech, desire, intreat, pray.

Compare G4441.

G2212 ζητέω
ζητέω
zēteō
dzay-teh'-o
Of uncertain affinity; to seek (literally or figuratively); specifically (by Hebraism) to worship (God), or (in a bad sense) to plot (against life)

KJV Usage: be (go) about, desire, endeavour, enquire (for), require, (X will) seek (after, for, means).

Compare G4441.
