I just ran the same thing on Gramcord. I required POLUS first, and the
dative immediately thereafter (I'm not sure this is the most sensible way,
but that's what I did). The search took 14 seconds, returned 12 results, and
all had datives in the required position. Hebrews 5:11 was one of them.

I can try variations on this, if you want.
