Beyond

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

1: ἐπέκεινα

(Strong's #1900 — Adverb — epekeina — ep-ek'-i-nah )

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

2: πέραν

(Strong's #4008 — Adverb — peran — per'-an )

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

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