KJV designation rendered “highest heaven” by most modern translations (1 Kings 8:27 ; 2 Chronicles 2:6 ; 2 Chronicles 6:18 ). According to an ancient understanding of the universe, above the canopy of the sky was a further canopy above which God dwelt. TEV understands “heavens of heavens” as “all (the vastness) of heaven”.
