hap, hap'-li (miqreh, lu; mepote):

Hap (a Saxon word for "luck, chance") is the translation of miqreh, "a fortuitous chance," "a lot" (Ruth 2:3, the King James Version "Her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz"); in 1 Samuel 6:9, the same word is translated "chance" (that happened); "event," in Ecclesiastes 9:2, 3, with "happeneth," in Ecclesiastes 2:14.

Haply (from "hap") is the translation of lu, "if that" (1 Samuel 14:30, "if haply the people had eaten freely"); of ei ara, "if then" (Mark 11:13, "if haply he might find anything thereon"); of ei arage (Acts 17:27, "if haply they might feel after him"); of mepote, "lest ever" "lest perhaps" etc. (Luke 14:29 Acts 5:39); of me pos, "lest in anyway" (2 Corinthians 9:4 the King James Version, "lest haply," the Revised Version (British and American) "lest by any means").

The Revised Version has "haply" for "at any time" (Matthew 4:6; Matthew 5:25; Matthew 13:15 Mark 4:12 Luke 4:11; Luke 21:34 Hebrews 2:1); introduces "haply" (Matthew 7:6; Matthew 13:29; Matthew 15:32; Matthew 27:64 Mark 14:2 Luke 3:15; Luke 12:58; Luke 14:8, 12 Acts 27:29 Hebrews 4:1); has "haply there shall be," for "lest there be" (Hebrews 3:12).
