International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


ut'-er-most: A pleonastic compound of a comparative ("utter"; compare "outer") and a superlative ("most"), in the King James Version used interchangeably with the ordinary superlative forms "utmost" (compare Mt 12:42; Lu 11:31) and "outmost" (compare Ex 26:4,10). The Revised Version (British and American) adds still another form, "outermost," in 2Ki 7:5,8 (the King James Version "uttermost"). the Revised Version (British and American) has made a few changes to secure a more accurate translation (Jer 9:26; Joe 2:20, etc.) or to give uniformity (Ex 26:4; Mt 5:26; 12:42, etc.), but for the most part has left the King James Version undisturbed.

1 Strong's Number: g3838 Greek: panteles


the neuter of the adjective panteles, "complete, perfect," used with eis to ("unto the"), is translated "to the uttermost" in Hbr 7:25, where the meaning may be "finally;" in Luk 13:11 (negatively), "in no wise."

2 Strong's Number: g5056 Greek: telos


"an end," is rendered "the uttermost" in 1Th 2:16, said of Divine wrath upon the Jews, referring to the prophecy of Deu 28:15-68; the nation as such, will yet, however, be delivered (Rom 11:26; cp. Jer 30:4-11). The full phrase is eis telos, "to the uttermost," which is probably the meaning in Jhn 13:1, "to the end."


(1) For "uttermost (farthing)," Mat 5:26, AV, see LAST. For "uttermost" in Act 24:22, see DETERMINE, No. 5.

(2) For "uttermost part (-s)," see END, A, No. 3 (a) and C (b).
