Thayer's Expanded Definition

ὑπερήφανος, ὑπερηφάνου (from ὑπέρ and φαίνομαι, with the connective (or the epic extension (cf. Curtius, § 392)), ; cf. ὑπερηφερης, δυσηλεγής, τανηλεγης εὐηγενής), from Hesiod down;

1. showing oneself above others, overtopping, conspicuous above others, pre-eminent (Plato, Plutarch, others).

2. especially in a bad sense, "with an overweening estimate of one's means or merits, despising others or even treating them with contempt, haughty" (cf. Westcott, Epistles of St. John, p. 64{b}): Romans 1:30; 2 Timothy 3:2; opposed to ταπεινοί, James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5 (in these two passages after Proverbs 3:34); with διάνοια καρδίας added, Luke 1:51. (The Sept. for זֵד, רָם, גֵּאֶה, etc.; often in the O. T. Apocrypha.) (See Trench, Synonyms, § xxix.; Schmidt, chapter 176, 8.)

STRONGS NT 5244a: ὑπερλίαν ὑπερλίαν (formed like ὑπεράγαν, ὑπέρευ), and written separately ὑπέρ λίαν (so R Tr (cf. Winers Grammar, § 50, 7 Note; Buttmann, § 146, 4)), over much; pre-eminently: οἱ ὑπερλίαν ἀπόστολοι, the most eminent apostles, 2 Corinthians 11:5; 2 Corinthians 12:11.
