I set up the search that Gregory specified (POLUS with a dative
pronoun or noun or adjective within 4 words) on Gramcord for Windows. I had
to make it a 3-template search. It came up with 68 verses, including Heb.
5:11. I haven't checked to see if some of the verses include more than one
of the constructions.

I would be interested to see a list of Paul's results to compare
them with mine.
