1 Peter 1:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Have inquired and searched diligently (ἐξεζήτησαν - ἐξηρεύνησαν)

Rev., properly, renders the aorists sought and searched diligently. The ἐξ in composition has the force of out, searched out, and is rendered by diligently.

Sought

Used of Esau's seeking carefully for a place of repentance, in Hebrews 12:17.

Searched

Used nowhere else in the New Testament. Compare Septuagint, 1 Samuel 23:23, of Saul's searching out David.
