ek-sed': The verb is found in other than its present sense in Job 36:9 the King James Version, "They have exceeded" (the Revised Version (British and American) "behaved themselves proudly"); 1 Sam 20:41, "They .... wept .... until David exceeded" (the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American)).
