Cognate: 574 haplṓs (the adverbial form of 573 /haploús, "single, unfolded") – properly, acting with simplicity – literally, "without folds" (WP, J. Thayer), i.e. without undue complications. See 572 (haplotēs).

574 /haplṓs ("simply"), used only in Js 1:5, refers to God "generously" giving wisdom – which is better translated "giving undividedly, openly" (literally, "unfolded, holding nothing back").

Js 1:5,6: "5But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously (574 /haplṓs) and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6But he must [continuously, in process] ask in faith (4102 /pístis) without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind" (NASU).
