Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words


In addition to the preposition huper, "over," rendered "beyond" in 2Cr 8:3, the following adverbs have this meaning:

1 Strong's Number: g1900 Greek: epekeina


epi, "upon," and ekeina, "those," the word "parts" being understood, is used in Act 7:43.

2 Strong's Number: g4008 Greek: peran


"on the other side, across," is used with the definite article, signifying the regions "beyond," the opposite shore, Mat 8:18 etc. With verbs of going it denotes direction towards and "beyond" a place, e.g., Jhn 10:40. It frequently indicates "beyond," of locality, without a verb of direction, Mat 16:5; Mar 10:1, RV; Jhn 1:28; 3:26.

Note: In 2Cr 10:14, the verb huperekteino, "to stretch overmuch," is so rendered in the RV, for AV, "... beyond our measure." In 2Cr 10:16 the adverb huperekeina, "beyond," is used as a preposition.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
