Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐξαιτέω, ἐξαίτω: 1 aorist middle ἐξητησαμην; to ask from, demand of (cf. ἐκ, VI. 2). Middle to ask from (or beg) for oneself: τινα, to ask that one be given up to one from the power of another — in both senses, either for good, to beg one from another, ask for the pardon, the safety, of someone (Xenophon, an. 1, 1, 3; Demosthenes, p. 546, 22; Plutarch, Per. 32; Palaeph. 41, 2); or in a bad sense, for torture, for punishment (Plutarch, mor., p. 417 d. de defect. orac. 14; in secular authors often with this sense in the active); so of Satan asking the apostles out of the power and keeping of God to be tried by afflictions (allusion being made to Job 1:1-12): Luke 22:31 (Test xii. Patr., p. 729 (test. Benj. § 3) ἐάν τά πνεύματα τοῦ Βελιάρ εἰς πᾶσαν πονηρίαν θλίψεως ἐξαιτησωνται ὑμᾶς).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

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.
