In the New Testament for ζήτημα , zḗtēma , the synonym ζήτησις , zḗtēsis (and 1 Timothy 1:4 , ἐκζήτησις , ekzḗtēsis ), being rendered "questionings" by the Revised Version (British and American) (the King James Version does not distinguish). In Mark 11:29 for λόγος , lógos , "word" (so the Revised Version margin). The verb in the sense "ask a question" in 2 Chronicles 31:9 for דּרשׁ , dārash , and Luke 2:46; Luke 23:9 for ἐπερωτάω , eperōtáō (compare the American Standard Revised Version, the English Revised Version margin John 16:23 ).
