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