HELPS Lexicon excerpt

Cognate: 5485 xáris (another feminine noun from xar-, "favor, disposed to, inclined, favorable toward, leaning toward to share benefit") – properly, grace.  5485 (xaris) is preeminently used of the Lord's favor, freely extended to give Himself away to people (because He "ever leans toward them").
