alazon is properly a boaster, who tells great things
concerning his own prowess and achievements, with the implied idea
that many of his claims are false. This word naturally describes a
trait which manifests itself in contact with one's fellow men, not one
which exists simply within the heart.

yperephanos describes one who thinks too highly of himself,
describing a trait which is simply internal, not referring primarily
to external manifestation, although this is implied. It means one who
is proud, the external manifestation when it appears being in the
form of arrogance in dealing with others.

ypristes describes one who delights in insolent wrong-doing
toward others, finds pleasure in such acts. Cruelty and lust are two
of the many forms which this quality assumes. These three words occur
together in Ro 1:30. They are never used in a good sense. They
may be said to move in a certain sense in an ascending scale of guilt,
designating respectively "the boastful in words, the proud and
overbearing in thoughts, the insolent and injurious in acts "
