Field (Notes, p. 76) takes the aor. mid. ἐξῃτήσατο in Luke 22:31 as indicating the success of the requisition, and paraphrases, ";Satan hath procured you (";obtained you by asking,"; RV marg.) to be given up to him";; cf. Syll 330.15 (i/B.C.) ὅτε ἰδίαν χάριν ἐξαιτησάμενοι Πόπλιόν τε Αὐτρώνιον καὶ Λεύκιον Μαρκίλιον. See for the act. ib. 168.29 (iv/B.C.) δι᾽ ὅπερ ἐξαιτή [σαντος αὐτὸν (Λυκοῦργ ̣ον) Ἀλεξάνδρου ὁ δ ]ῆμος ἀπέγνω μὴ συνχωρῆ [σαι μηδὲ λόγον ποιεῖσθαι τῆς ] ἐξαιτήσεως, and BGU III. 944.8 (iv/v A.D.) ἐξῄτησας τήν μισθαποχήν (";receipt for pay";). The verb is fully illustrated by Wetstein ad Lk l.c.
