Resource Toolbox
A — 1: ὑψηλός

A — 2: ὕψιστος
(Strong's #5310 — Adverb — hupsistos — hoop'-sis-tos )

"most high," is a superlative degree, the positive not being in use; it is used of God in Luke 1:32,35,76 ; 6:35 , in each of which the RV has "the most High," for AV, "the highest;" AV and RV in Mark 5:7 ; Luke 8:28 ; Acts 7:48 ; 16:17 ; Hebrews 7:1 . See HIGHEST (below).
