Lob. ad Phryn., p. 721; Winers Grammar, 86 (82); (cf.

1. properly, to come upon, hit upon, to meet with;
a. after searching, to find a thing sought: absolutely, opposed to ζητεῖν, Matthew 7:7; Luke 11:9f (ζητεῖ καί εὑρήσεις, Epictetus diss. 4, 1, 51); τινα, Matthew 2:8; Mark 1:37; Luke 2:45; Acts 11:26 (Acts 11:25); Acts 13:22; 2 Corinthians 2:13 (2 Corinthians 2:12); 2 Timothy 1:17; Revelation 20:15, etc.; οὐχ εὑρίσκετο, he had vanished, Hebrews 11:5; with a specification of place added: πέραν with the genitive John 6:25; ἐν with the dative Acts 5:22; εὑρέθη εἰς, Acts 8:40 (see εἰς, C. 2); with the accusative of the thing, Matthew 7:14; Matthew 13:46; Matthew 18:13; Luke 24:3; John 10:9; Acts 7:11; Romans 7:18 Rec., etc.; followed by indirect discourse, Luke 5:19; οὐχ εὑρέθησαν, had disappeared, Revelation 16:20, cf. Revelation 18:21; with the dative of advantage, Revelation 20:11; followed by ἐν with the dative of place, Matthew 21:19; Revelation 12:8. τινα or τί ζητεῖν καί οὐχ εὑρίσκειν: Matthew 12:43; Matthew 26:60; Mark 14:55; Luke 11:24; Luke 13:6; John 7:34; Revelation 9:6 (2 Kings 2:17; Nehemiah 7:64; Psalm 9:36 (Ps. 10:15); Ecclesiastes 7:29; Ezekiel 22:30; Ezekiel 26:21 Ald.; Complutensian; Hosea 2:7); γῆ καί τά ἐν αὐτῇ ἔργα εὑρεθήσεται shall be found namely, for destruction, i. e. will be unable to hide themselves from the doom decreed them by God, 2 Peter 3:10 Tr WH, after the strange but improbable reading of manuscripts א B and other authorities; (see WH. Introductory § 365 and Appendix at the passage).
b. without previous search, to find (by chance), to fall in with: τινα, Matthew 18:28; Matthew 27:32; John 1:41 (John 1:42), John 1:45 (John 1:46); John 5:14; 9:35; Acts 13:6; Acts 18:2; Acts 19:1; Acts 28:14; followed by ἐν with the dative of place, John 2:14. τί, Matthew 13:44; Matthew 17:27; Luke 4:17; John 12:14; Acts 17:23; followed by ἐν, with the dative of place, Matthew 8:10; Luke 7:9.
c. εὑρίσκω τινα or τί with a predicate accusative is used of those who come or return to a place, the predicate participle or adjective describing the state or condition in which the person or thing met with is found, or the action which one is found engaged in: with an adjective, Acts 5:10; 2 Corinthians 9:4; 2 Corinthians 12:20; with a participle (cf. Buttmann, 301 (258)), Matthew 12:44; Matthew 20:6; Matthew 21:2; Matthew 24:46; Matthew 26:40, 43; Mark 11:2; Mark 13:36; Mark 14:37, 40; Luke 2:12; Luke 7:10; Luke 8:35; Luke 11:25; Luke 12:37, 43; Luke 19:30; Luke 23:2; Luke 24:2, 33; Acts 5:23; Acts 9:2; Acts 10:27; Acts 21:2; Acts 24:12, 18; Acts 27:6; followed by καθώς, Mark 14:16; Luke 19:32; Luke 22:13; followed by a predicate substantive to which ὄντα must be supplied, Acts 24:5 (cf. Winers Grammar, § 45, 6 b.; Buttmann, 304 (261)).
2. tropically, "to find by inquiry, thought, examination, scrutiny, observation, hearing; to find out by practice and experience," i. e. to see, learn, discover, understand: κατηγορίαν, Luke 6:7 (T Tr text WH κατηγορεῖν); τινα followed by participle in the predicate, Acts 23:29; by ὅτι, Romans 7:21; after an examination (πειράζειν), τινα (τί) with a predicate adjective (participle), Revelation 3:2; of a judge: αἰτίαν θανάτου, Acts 13:28; αἰτίαν, κακόν, ἀδίκημα ἐν τίνι, John 18:38; John 19:4, 6; Acts 23:9; Acts 24:20; after a computation, with an accusative of the price or measure, Acts 19:19; Acts 27:28; after deliberation, τό τί ποιήσωσι, Luke 19:48; τό πῶς κολάσωνται αὐτούς, Acts 4:21. Passive ἑυρίσκομαι to be found, i. e. to be seen, be present: Luke 9:36 (Genesis 18:31); often like the Hebrew נִמְצָא to be discovered, recognized, detected, to show oneself out, of one's character or state as found out by others (men, God, or both) (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 65, 8): εὑρέθη ἐν γαστρί ἔχουσα, Matthew 1:18; ἵνα εὑρεθῶσι καθώς καί ἡμεῖς, 2 Corinthians 11:12; εὑρέθη μοι ἐντολή εἰς θάνατον namely, οὖσα, the commandment, as I found by experience, brought death to me, Romans 7:10; add, Luke 17:18 (none showed themselves as having returned); Acts 5:39; 1 Corinthians 4:2; 1 Corinthians 15:15; 2 Corinthians 5:3; Galatians 2:17; 1 Peter 1:7; Revelation 5:4; τίνι, the dative of the person taking cognizance and judging (Winers Grammar, § 31, 10; Buttmann, 187 (162)), 2 Peter 3:14 (add 2 Corinthians 12:20, yet cf. Buttmann, the passage cited and § 133, 14; Winer's Grammar, § 31, 4 a.); ἵνα εὑρεθῶ ἐν αὐτῷ i. e. ἐν Χριστῷ, namely, ὤν, Philippians 3:9; σχήματι εὑρεθείς ὡς ἄνθρωπος, Philippians 2:7 (8) (Josephus, b. j. 3, 6, 1; so the Latinincenior, Cicero, de amic. 19, 70; reperior, Tuscul. i. 39, 94). εὑρίσκειν Θεόν (opposed to ζητεῖν αὐτόν, see ζητέω, 1 c. (cf. ἐκζητέω, a.)), to get knowledge of, come to know, God, Acts 17:27; εὑρίσκεται ( Θεός) τίνι, discloses the knowledge of himself to one, Wis. 1:2; cf. Grimm, exgt. Hdb. at the passage (who refers to Philo, monarch. i. § 5; Origen contra Celsus 7, 42). On the other hand, in the O. T. εὑρίσκεται Θεός is used of God heaving prayer, granting aid implored (1 Chronicles 28:9; 2 Chronicles 15:2, 4, 15; Jeremiah 36:13 (Jer. 29:13)); hence, εὑρέθην (L and Tr in brackets WH marginal reading add ἐν) τοῖς ἐμέ μή ζητοῦσι, Romans 10:20 from Isaiah 65:1, means, according to Paul's conception, I granted the knowledge and deliverance of the gospel.
3. Middle, as in Greek writings, to find for oneself, to acquire, get, obtain, procure: λύτρωσιν, Hebrews 9:12; contrary to better Greek usage, the active is often used in the Scriptures in the same sense (cf. Buttmann, 193 (167); Winer's Grammar, 18; 33 (32) n.): τήν ψυχήν, Matthew 10:39; Matthew 16:25; ἀνάπαυσιν, (Sir. 11:19) ταῖς ψυχαῖς ὑμῶν, Matthew 11:29; μετανοίας τόπον, place for recalling the decision, changing the mind (of his father), Hebrews 12:17 (cf. Winer's Grammar, 147 (139)); σκήνωμα τῷ Θεῷ, opportunity of building a house for God, Acts 7:46; χάριν εὕρωμεν, grace, favor, Hebrews 4:16; χάριν παρά τῷ Θεῷ, Luke 1:30; ἐνώπιον, τοῦ Θεοῦ, Acts 7:46; ἔλεος παρά κυρίου, 2 Timothy 1:18; (בֲּעֵינֵי חֵן מָצָא, Genesis 6:8; Genesis 18:3; Genesis 30:27; Genesis 32:6; Exodus 33:12; Deuteronomy 24:1, etc.; 1 Esdr. 8:4). (Compare: ἀνευρίσκω.)
