kwes ´- chun : The noun for דּבר , dābhār , "word," in 1 Kings 10:3 parallel 2 Chronicles 9:2 , with "hard question" for חידה , ḥı̄dhāh , "dark saying," "riddle," in 1 Kings 10:1 parallel 2 Chronicles 9:1 . 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 ). Elsewhere the verb is for συζητέω , suzētéō , "dispute" (Mark 1:27 , etc.; compare Acts 6:9; Acts 9:29 ). "Called in question," Acts 19:40 the King James Version, represents ἐγκαλέω , egkaléō , "call into court," but in Acts 23:6; Acts 24:21 , "I am called in question" is for κρίνομαι , krı́nomai , "I am being judged."
