hapas: all, the wholeOriginal Word: ἅπας, ασα, ανPart of Speech:
all, the wholeDefinition:
all, the whole, altogether.
537 hápas (from 260 /háma, "all together" and 3956 /pás, "each, every") – each and every one (as a comprehensive unit), i.e. "each and every part" making up a complete unit. 537 (hápas) focuses on the individual parts and their totality and thus "sweeps with a wider broom" than 3956 /pás ("each, every").
Example: Ac 11:10: "This happened three times, and everything (537 /hápas) was drawn back up into the sky" (NASU).
In this verse, "everything" ("all," 537 /hápas) has two foci: each and every animal; and the entire Levitical food-system.
