ἅπας, ά῾πασα, ἅπαν (from ἅμα (or rather (Sanskritsa; cf. copulative), see Curtius, § 598; Vanicek, p. 972) and πᾶς; stronger than the simple πᾶς) (from Homer down); quite all, the whole, all together, all; it is either placed before a substantive having the article, as Luke 3:21; Luke 8:37; Luke 19:37; or placed after, as Mark 16:15 (εἰς τόν κόσμον ἅπαντα into all parts of the world); Luke 4:6 (this dominion wholely- i. e. all parts of this dominion which you see); . used absolutely — in the masculine, as Matthew 24:39; Luke 3:16 (T WH Tr marginal reading πᾶσιν); (Luke 4:40 WH text Tr marginal reading); (WH marginal reading πάντας); Mark 11:32 (Lachmann πάντες); James 3:2; — in the neuter, as Matthew 28:11; Luke 5:28 (R G); Acts 2:44; Acts 4:32 (L WH Tr marginal reading πάντα); ; Ephesians 6:13; once in John viz. 4:25 T Tr WH; (ἅπαντες οὗτοι, Acts 2:7 L T; ἅπαντες ὑμεῖς, Galatians 3:28 T Tr; cf. πᾶς, II. 1 at the end Rarely used by Paul; most frequently by Luke. On its occurrence, cf. Alford, Greek New Testament, vol. ii., Proleg., p. 81; Ellicott on 1 Timothy 1:16).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The use of ἅπας for πᾶς appears to be largely determined by considerations of euphony, and is confined principally to literary documents : see Mayser Gr. p. 161 f., where it is shown that in seventeen out of twenty-one occurrences in Ptolemaic papyri ἅπας follows a consonant, and only in four cases a vowel. As examples of ἅπας from Roman times we may cite P Oxy III. 471.82 (official—ii/A.D.) ὥστε ἄντικρυς ἁπάντων συνπαίζειν, and ib, 642 (official—ii/A.D.) πρὸ παντὸς γὰρ πεφροντίκαμεν τῆς πρὸς ὑμᾶς. . . εὐνοίας καὶ ἀρετῆς ἢ τῶν ἄλλων ἁπάντων. P Ryl II. 68.12 (B.C. 89) ε ̣͗[πληξέν ] με. . . [πλη ]γαῖς πλεί [στα ]ις εἰς α ̣̓́π ̣α ̣ν ̣ [μέρος ] τοῦ σώμα [τό ]ς μου answers to Mayser’s rule, but has no suspicion of literariness. So such a phrase as εἰς τὸν ἅπαντα χρόν [ον ], P Tebt I. 567 (late ii/B.C.).
