STRONGS H194:
II. אוּלַי 44 and (Genesis 24:39) אֻלַי adverb (perhaps from אוֺ & לַי = לֵי, לֵא, as in לוּלֵא, = or not ?).
1. peradventure, perhaps; usually expressing a hope, as Genesis 16:2; Numbers 22:6, 11; Numbers 23:3; 1 Samuel 6:5; Jeremiah 20:10; but also a fear or doubt, as Genesis 27:12; Job 1:5, followed by לֹא Genesis 24:5, 39; in mockery Isaiah 47:12; Jeremiah 51:8.
2. followed by another clause ἀσυνδέτως, it, it expresses virtually the protasis = if peradventure Genesis 18:24, 28 (compare Genesis 18:29-32) Hosea 8:7 the blade shall yield no meal; יִבְלָעֻהוּ זָרִים יַעֲשֶׂה אוּלַי if perchance it yield, strangers shall swallow it up.
3. in Numbers 22:33 לוּלֵי (which see) must be read; unless she had turned aside from me, surely, etc.
