(Strong's #5244 — Adjective — huperephanos — hoop-er-ay'-fan-os )

"showing oneself above others" (huper, "over," phainomai, "to appear"), though often denoting preeminent, is always used in the NT in the evil sense of "arrogant, disdainful, haughty;" it is rendered "haughty" in Romans 1:30 ; 2 Timothy 3:2 , RV, AV, "proud," but "proud" in both versions in Luke 1:51 ; James 4:6 ; 1 Peter 5:5 ; in the last two it is set in opposition to tapeinos, "humble, lowly." Cp. the noun huperephania, Mark 7:22 , "pride."
