Greek Original:
Κατοικτίζετο: οἴκτου τυχεῖν ἠξίου, ἐλέους κυρῆσαι. ὁ δὲ ἐπὶ τὰ κοινὰ τῶν Βαβυλωνίων καταστὰς κατοικτίζετο. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ τῇ φωνῇ κατοικτιζόμενος ἐλεῆσαι σφᾶς παρεκάλει.
[1] The headword is third person singular, imperfect middle, of κατοικίζω . It is presumably extracted from the first quotation given. (The second quotation has the present middle participle of this verb.)
