International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

hap'-'-n (qarah; sumbaino): "Happen" (from "hap"), "to fall out," "befall," etc., "come to anyone," is the translation of qarah, "to meet," etc. (1 Samuel 28:10, "There shall no punishment happen to thee," the Revised Version margin "guilt come upon thee"; 2 Samuel 1:6 Esther 4:7 Ecclesiastes 2:14, 15; Ecclesiastes 9:11 Isaiah 41:22); of qara', "to meet," "cause to happen," etc. (2 Samuel 20:1); of hayah, "to be" (1 Samuel 6:9, "It was a chance that happened to us"); of nagha', "to touch," "to come to" (Ecclesiastes 8:14 bis). In the New Testament it is in several instances the translation of sumbaino, "to go" or "come up together" "to happen" (Mark 10:32 Luke 24:14 Acts 3:10 1 Corinthians 10:11 1 Peter 4:12 2 Peter 2:22); once of ginomai, "to become," "to happen" (Romans 11:25, the Revised Version (British and American), "befallen"). "Happeneth" occurs (Ecclesiastes 2:15, as it happeneth to the fool" (miqreh); APC 2Esdras 10:6 Baruch 3:10 (ti estin)). The Revised Version (British and American) supplies "that happened" for "were done" (Luke 24:35).
