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" (Josh 12:23), "region" (1 Ki 4:11), "borders" (Josh 11:2), "countries" (Josh 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" (Ezek 31:5,10), "raised basement" (Ezek 41:8), etc. In the New Testament we have hupsoma, prop. of space (Rom 8:39), and hupsos of measure (Eph 3:18; Rev 21:16).
