Winer s Grammar, § 6,1a.; (Buttmann, 62 (54))), imperative from εἶδον, which see; (from Homer down). In so far as it retains the force of an imperative it is illustrated under εἰδῶ, I:1e. and 3.

Lo!" a. at the beginning of sentences: as the utterance of one who wishes that something should not be neglected by another, equivalent to German sieh' doch (see, pray; yet see), hier ist, da ist, dieses ist: ἴδετόπος (French, voici le lieu), L Tr marginal reading ἰδού); T Tr WH ἰδού), ἰδού); where we (might) use simply here, ἴδε (R G L ἰδού) ὧδεΧριστός, ἴδε (R G ἰδού) ἐκεῖ, John 3:26.
