Height; Heights

hit, The English terms represent a large number of Hebrew words (gobhah, marom, qomah, rum, etc.). A chief thing to notice is that in the Revised Version (British and American) "height" and "heights" are frequently substituted for other words in the King James Version, as "coast" (Jos 12:23), "region" (1Ki 4:11), "borders" (Jos 11:2), "countries" (Jos 17:11), "strength" (Ps 95:4), "high places" (Isa 41:18; Jer 3:2,21; 7:29; 12:12; 14:6), "high palaces" (Ps 78:69). On the other hand, for "height" in the King James Version, the Revised Version (British and American) has "stature" (Eze 31:5,10), "raised basement" (Eze 41:8), etc. In the New Testament we have hupsoma, prop. of space (Ro 8:39), and hupsos of measure (Eph 3:18; Re 21:16).
