Khabouris vs BFBS/UBS - 2Corinthians 12:2, "Third heaven"
1: The Sky (earth's atmosphere, where the birds fly and the clouds form) = 1st Heavens
2: Space (where the Moon and Stars and Galaxies are) = 2nd Heavens
3: The third Heaven is where Christ is, whom the third Heaven must receive until the time of restoration of all things, when He returns.

The "seven heavens concept" is not found in The Bible.

The Heavens of the third? What does that mean to you?

The UBS text was based on the 1826 A.D. Lee Edition, which version Lee is said to have incorporated several readings that aren't seen elsewhere. This reading might be one of them. The UBS is a composite text made during the 1800's to the early 1900's, which cull its readings from various manuscript sources, and as indicated above has retained some of Lee's unique wording.

The Khabouris is trustworthy, and the wording is not unique to itself. While I'm not certain why the spelling difference, but, it could be dialectical in nature. Maybe Shamasha Paul can speak to that.
