1: ὕψος
(Strong's #5311 — Noun Neuter — hupsos — hoop'-sos )

"a summit, top," is translated "height" in Ephesians 3:18 , where it may refer either to "the love of Christ" or to "the fullness of God;" the two are really inseparable, for they who are filled into the fullness of God thereby enter appreciatively into the love of Christ, which "surpasseth knowledge;" in Revelation 21:16 , of the measurement of the heavenly Jerusalem. See ESTATE , HIGH.

2: ὕψωμα
(Strong's #5313 — Noun Neuter — hupsoma — hoop'-so-mah )

more concrete than No. 1, is used (a) of "a height," as a mountain or anything definitely termed a "height," Romans 8:39 (metaphorically); (b) of "a high thing" lifted up as a barrier or in antagonistic exaltation, 2 Corinthians 10:5 . See HIGH. Cp. hupsoo, "to exalt."
