LOFTILY; LOFTINESS; LOFTY

lof'-ti-li, lof'-ti-nes: The first form is only in Psalm 73:8, where it means "haughtily," as if from on high. The second is found only in Jeremiah 48:29, where the loftiness of Moab also means his haughtiness, his groundless self-conceit.

Lofty likewise means ' "haughty," "lifted up" (compare Psalm 131:1 Isaiah 2:11 Proverbs 30:13). In Isaiah 26:5 it refers to a self-secure and boastful city. In 57:15 it is used in a good sense of God who really is high and supreme. Isaiah uses the word more than all the other sacred writers put together.
