Transitive verbs rarely used intransitivelyTransitive verbs are rarely used intransitively. Eye (appear).
Lack (to be needed).--
“But, sir, forgive me
Since my becomings kill me, when they do not
Eye well to you.
So E. E. Need (to be needed).-- “These ceremonies need not.” B. J. E. in &c. iii. 2. This is perhaps a remnant of the ancient love for impersonal verbs. Such verbs would be appropriate to express "need." Hence in Matt. xix. 20, Mark x. 21, Wickliffe has "faileth to me" and "to thee," where the A. V. has "what do I lack" and "thou lackest." Similarly, Milton (Areopagitica) uses "what wants there?" for "what is needed?" and this use still exists in conversation. So often Shakespeare, e.g.
“And what so poor a man as Hamlet is
May do to express his love and friending to you,
God willing, shall not lack.
Show (like our "look:" compare German "schauen").
“There wanteth now our brother Gloucester here.
“Each substance of a grief hath twenty shadows
Which shows like grief itself.
