Here's another parsing problem where the tools disagree. I've already
decided for myself, but I'd sure like some second opinions in case I missed
something obvious (honestly its so I can blame you'all if someone says I've
made a mistake :-) ):

Is APOKTEINWSIN Pres or Aor Subj (Matt 26:4; Mark 14:1; John 11:53; 12:10;
Acts 23:12; 27:42; Rev 9:5, 15); or is it possible that some of these are
Aorist and some are Present ??

Is APOKTEINWMEN Pres or Aor Subj (Matt 21:38; Mark 12:7; Luke 20:14; Acts
23:14) or some one and some the other ??

One additional note; the NT writers do seem otherwise to have an aversion to
the use of APOKTEINW in the Present (3x, all ptcs: Matt 23:37; Luke 12:4;
13:34; the other presents are based on the lemma APOKTENNW [Matt 10:28; Mark
12:5; 2Cor 3:6; Rev 6:11...there are some textual problems involved]).

Many thanks........
