Cognate: 573 haploús (haploós) – properly, unfolded, single – literally, "without folds" (J. Thayer), referring to a single (undivided) focus, i.e. without a (secret) "double agenda" which prevents an over-complicated life (becoming needlessly distracted). See 572 (haplotēs).

[573 (haploús) is the antonym of the Greek term diplous meaning, "double." MM notes in the papyri that 573 (haploús) likewise means, "simple" (uncompounded, single).]

STRONGS NT 573: ἁπλοῦς

ἁπλοῦς, ἁπλῆ, ἁπλουν (contracted from ἁπλῶς, ἁπλοη, ἁπλων) (from Aeschylus down), simple, single (in which there is nothing complicated or confused; without folds (cf. Trench, § lvi.)); whole; of the eye, good, fulfilling its office, sound: Matthew 6:22; Luke 11:34 — (others contend that the moral sense of the word is the only sense lexically warranted; cf. Test xii. Patr. test. Isach. § 3οὐ κατελάλησα τίνος, etc. πορευόμενος ἐν ἁπλότητι ὀφθαλμῶν, ibid. § 4πάντα ὁρᾷ ἐν ἁπλότητι, μή ἐπιδεχόμενος ὀφθαλμοῖς πονηρίας ἀπό τῆς πλάνης τοῦ κόσμου; yet cf. Fritzsche on Romans 12:8).
