Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חֵפֶץ m. with suff. חֶפְצִי [pl. חֲפָצִים]

(1)  delight. 1 Samuel 15:22; Psalms 1:2, 16:3 1 Kings 10:13, כָּל־חֶפְצָהּ “every thing in which she delighted.” דִּבְרֵי חֵפֶץ pleasant, acceptable words, Ecclesiastes 12:10, 5:3, אֵין חֵפֶץ בַּכְּסִילִים “(God) has no pleasure in fools.”

(2) desire, will, Job 31:16.

(3) something precious (comp. חֶמֶד). אַבְנֵי־חֵפֶץ precious stones, Isaiah 54:12 plural חֲפָצִים precious things, Proverbs 3:15, 8:11.

(4) pursuit, ardour, hence affair, matter, LXX. πρᾶγμα Ecclesiastes 3:1, וְעֵת לְכָל־חֵפֶץ “and its own time for every thing,” i.e. all things are fleeting and unenduring, nothing is stable and everlasting. 5:7, אַל־תִּתְמַהּ עַל הַחֶפֶץ “marvel not at this thing.” The origin of this signification may be seen from passages such as these, Isaiah 53:10, חֵפֶץ יְהֹוָה בְּיָדוֹ יִצְלַח “the affairs of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand,” Isaiah 44:28, 58:3, 13 Isaiah 58:13; Job 21:21, 22:3. (Similar to this is the Syriac ܨܒܘܽ a thing, an affair, from ܨܒܐܳ i.q. חָפֵץ to will, desire.)
