heaven of heavens

1 Kings 8:27

8:27 heaven of heavens. This phrase “heaven of heavens” probably answers to “the third heaven” (II Corinthians 12:2). The first heaven is the atmosphere. Above that is the heaven of the stars, extending unknown billions of light years out into space. Then, still above that is the heaven of heavens, projecting infinitely beyond all the stars, and this is where God now has His throne. After His resurrection, Christ “ascended up far above all heavens” (Ephesians 4:10) to the right hand of God.
