Verses with the word excel in the Apocrypha (3 verses):
1 Esdras 4:2
O ye men, do not men excel in strength that bear rule over sea and land and all things in them?
Wisdom of Solomon 15:9
Notwithstanding his care is, not that he shall have much labour, nor that his life is short: but striveth to excel goldsmiths and silversmiths, and endeavoureth to do like the workers in brass, and counteth it his glory to make counterfeit things.
Why doth one day excel another, when as all the light of every day in the year is of the sun?
