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" (Joshua 12:23), "region" (1 Kings 4:11), "borders" (Joshua 11:2), "countries" (Joshua 17:11), "strength" (Psalm 95:4), "high places" (Isaiah 41:18 Jeremiah 3:2, 21; Jeremiah 7:29; Jeremiah 12:12; Jeremiah 14:6), "high palaces" (Psalm 78:69). On the other hand, for "height" in the King James Version, the Revised Version (British and American) has "stature" (Ezekiel 31:5, 10), "raised basement" (Ezekiel 41:8), etc. In the New Testament we have hupsoma, prop. of space (Romans 8:39), and hupsos of measure (Ephesians 3:18 Revelation 21:16).
