[ 1,,G1900, epekeina ]
epi, "upon," and ekeina, "those," the word "parts" being understood, is used in Acts 7:43.

[ 2,,G4008, peran ]
"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; John 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.
