'Besought' in the Bible
So at once the whole population came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they besought Him to leave their country.
When they had returned to the people, there came to Him a man who fell on his knees before Him and besought Him.
So they besought Jesus. "Send us to the swine," they said, "so that we may enter into them."
and besought Him with many entreaties. "My little daughter," he said, "is at the point of death: I pray you come and lay your hands upon her, that she may recover and live."
and they besought Him not to command them to be gone into the Bottomless Pit.
