They zealously seek you (zhlousin uma). Zhlow is an old and a good word from zhlo (zeal, jealousy), but one can pay court with good motives or evil. So here in contrast with Paul's plain speech the Judaizers bring their fawning flattery. To shut you out (ekkleisai uma). From Christ as he will show ( Ephesians 5:4 ). That ye may seek them (ina autou zhloute). Probably present active indicative with ina as in pusiousqe ( 1 Corinthians 4:6 ) and ginwskomen ( 1 John 5:20 ). The contraction -ohte would be -wte, not -oute (Robertson, Grammar, p. 325).
