Not sure there are any

The word occurs 8 times but I don't believe any of these are of the emphatic type

Didn't Graham just say that he didn't think there were any?

You probably need to look at the results of the search Graham ran - if you'd like more help from people here, it would probably be helpful if you were to tell us what lies behind your question. For instance, some would probably argue that the use of the word in the Beatitudes is emphatic, but I'm not sure if you have a specific technical meaning in mind, or whether you are just looking for instances where the NT is emphasising the blessedness of specific people or groups.

Edit: just realised that those in the Beatitudes are makarioi, not eulogetoi. Sorry for any confusion

So alabama24

I was thinking that Graham was saying none of this form  (εὐλογητός) of the word blessed was  Emphatic. maybe I was wrong.

No confusion. I was really just looking for any Emphatic form of the word blessed. was hoping it was not to much of a stretch in Ephesian 1:3

Thanks

That is what I was saying. But there is clearly some confusion.....

I think you were asking whether there were any instances of the word εὐλογητός which were emphatic. Is that actually your question?

Because if so - as above - I don't believe that any of the occurences of the word are.

I believe that "Emphatic" applies to Adverbs, Conjunctions or Particles

And searching for any of those results in zero results  - example below

Is this what you are looking for or are you looking for something else?

Ok - just seen this.

So you are really interested in any words which are translated as blessed and used in the emphatic form.

I'll try and get back to you on that in a few minutes.

So I still don't think there are any - even with the word "blessed" in any form.

If I do a search for the word "blessed", switch into Analysis view and group results by "Part of Speech" I get the results below:

and if "Emphatic" is used in the context of  Adverbs, Conjunctions or Particles (which I believe to be the case) then it can't match.

You mentioned the use of "blessed" in Ephesians 1:3 - as below one of these is a noun and the other is a verb so can't be "emphatic"

But I'm still not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do

Can you clarify please?
