STRONGS NT 5242: ὑπερέχω
ὑπερέχω; from Homer down;

b. to excel, to be superior: τίνος, better than (cf. Buttmann, § 132, 22), Philippians 2:3 (Sir. 36:7; Xenophon, venta 1, 11; Plato, Menex., p. 237d.; Demosthenes, p. 689, 10; Diodorus 17, 77); to surpass: τινα or τί (cf. Buttmann, § 130, 4), Philippians 4:7; τό ὑπερέχον, a substantive, the excellency, surpassing worth (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 34, 2), Philippians 3:8.
