Beseech \Be*seech"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Besought; p. pr. &
vb. n. Beseeching.] [OE. bisechen, biseken (akin to G.

1. To ask or entreat with urgency; to supplicate; to implore.
I beseech you, punish me not with your hard
But Eve . . . besought his peace. --Milton.
Syn: To beg; to crave.
Usage: To Beseech, Entreat, Solicit, Implore,
Supplicate. These words agree in marking that sense
of want which leads men to beg some favor. To solicit
is to make a request, with some degree of earnestness
and repetition, of one whom we address as a superior.
To entreat implies greater urgency, usually enforced
by adducing reasons or arguments. To beseech is still
stronger, and belongs rather to the language of poetry
and imagination. To implore denotes increased fervor
of entreaty, as addressed either to equals or
superiors. To supplicate expresses the extreme of
entreaty, and usually implies a state of deep
humiliation. Thus, a captive supplicates a conqueror
to spare his life. Men solicit by virtue of their
interest with another; they entreat in the use of
reasoning and strong representations; they beseech
with importunate earnestness; they implore from a
sense of overwhelming distress; they supplicate with a
feeling of the most absolute inferiority and
p. p. of Beseech.
