STRONGS NT 1189: δέομαι
δέομαι; 3 person singular imperfect ἐδέετο (cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 220; Winers Grammar, 46; [Veitch, under the word δέω to need at the end]), Luke 8:38 (where Lachmann ἐδέειτο, Tr WH ἐδεῖτο; cf. Meyer at the passage; [WHs Appendix, p. 166]; Buttmann, 55 (48)); 1 aorist ἐδεήθην; (from δέω to want, need; whence middle δέομαι to stand in need of, want for oneself); [from Herodotus down];
1. to want, lack: τινός.
2. to desire, long for: τινός.
3. to ask, beg (German bitten);
a. universally — the thing asked for being evident from the context: with the genitive of the person from whom, Galatians 4:12; the thing sought being specified in direct discourse: Luke 5:12; Luke 8:28; Luke 9:38 (according to the reading ἐπίβλεψον R L); Acts 8:34 (δέομαί σου, περὶ τίνος προφήτης λέγει τοῦτο; of whom, I pray thee, doth the prophet say this?); Acts 21:39; 2 Corinthians 5:20; followed by the infinitive, Luke 8:38; Luke 9:38 (according to the reading ἐπιβλέψαι Tr WH); Acts 26:3 (where G L T Tr WH omit σοῦ after δέομαι); followed by ἵνα, Luke 9:40 (cf.

b. specifically, of requests addressed to God; absolutely to pray, make supplication: Acts 4:31; τοῦ θεοῦ, Acts 10:2; followed by εἰ ἄρα, Acts 8:22 [Buttmann, 256 (220); Winer's Grammar, 300 (282)]; τοῦ κυρίου, ὅπως etc. Matthew 9:38; Luke 10:2; without the genitive θεοῦ, — followed by εἴ πως, Romans 1:10 [cf. Winers Grammar, and Buttmann's Grammar, the passages cited]; by ἵνα, Luke 21:36; Luke 22:32; by the telic εἰς τό, 1 Thessalonians 3:10 [cf.
