Seeking definition

Seeking means to try to get or achieve something. Olson, through Apex, was clearly trying to get, or achieve, employment for professional services contracted to Ulteig. The fact that Olson and Apex were largely unsuccessful does not change the fact that this is what they were seeking to do. This conduct violated
Seeking reorganization or an arrangement with creditors or to take advantage of any bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, readjustment of debt, dissolution or liquidation law or statute, or an answer admitting the material allegations of a petition filed against it in any proceeding under any such law or corporate action shall be taken for the purpose of effecting any of the foregoing;
Seeking. Jesus, then, means either to "seek to arrest" him or to "seek to kill" him; even seeking to arrest him serves as the prelude to killing him and so comes to the same thing. "Seeking" in John 7 is tantamount to murder. From the narrative point of view, then, this audience is either unbelievably obtuse as to the public controversy over Jesus or it is lying when it says that it does not know what Jesus means about "seeking" him. I favor the latter interpretation for two reasons. In 7:20 the judges and critics of Jesus already lied by asking "Who seeks to kill you?" when the narrator has clearly informed his readers that they are in fact "seeking to kill him" (7:1); Jesus know this and so asks the question, "Why do you seek to kill me?" (7:19). Moreover, Jesus will shortly expose many of his audience as sons of the devil, who is both liar and murderer from the beginning (8:44). Hence, we read the crowd's question in 7:35-36 as a lie about murder; they are "seeking" Jesus to arrest and kill him, but now they are lying about it.
