John.21:25 25ἔστιν δὲ καὶ ἄλλα πολλὰ ἐποίησεν Ἰησοῦς· ἅτινα ἐὰν γράφηται καθ᾽ ἕν, οὐδ᾽ αὐτὸν οἶμαι τὸν κόσμον χωρήσειν τὰ γραφόμενα βιβλία. 25 {NEQ} Jesus {NEQ} also did many other things . If they were all written down , I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written .
Acts.17:24 24 θεὸς ποιήσας τὸν κόσμον καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐν αὐτῷ. οὗτος οὐρανοῦ καὶ γῆς ὑπάρχων κύριος, οὐκ ἐν χειροποιήτοις ναοῖς κατοικεῖ, 24 He is the God who made the world and everything in it . Since he is Lord of heaven and earth , he doesn’t live in man-made temples ,
Rom.1:8 8πρῶτον μὲν εὐχαριστῶ τῷ θεῷ μου διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν, ὅτι πίστις ὑμῶν καταγγέλλεται ἐν ὅλῳ τῷ κόσμῳ. 8 Let me say first that I thank my {NEQ} God through Jesus Christ for all of you , because your {NEQ} faith in him is being talked about all over the world .
Rom.1:20 20τὰ γὰρ ἀόρατα αὐτοῦ, ἀπὸ κτίσεως κόσμου τοῖς ποιήμασιν νοούμενα καθορᾶται— τε ἀΐδιος αὐτοῦ δύναμις καὶ θειότης· εἰς τὸ εἶναι αὐτοὺς ἀναπολογήτους. 20 For ever since the world was created , people have seen the earth and sky . Through everything God made , they can clearly see his {NEQ} invisible qualities {NEQ} {NEQ} his eternal power and divine nature . So they have no excuse for not knowing God .
Rom.3:6 6μὴ γένοιτο· ἐπεὶ πῶς κρινεῖ θεὸς τὸν κόσμον; 6 Of course not ! If {NEQ} God were not entirely fair , how would he be qualified to judge the world ?
Rom.3:19 19οἴδαμεν δέ, ὅτι ὅσα νόμος λέγει τοῖς ἐν τῷ νόμῳ λαλεῖ, ἵνα πᾶν στόμα φραγῇ, καὶ ὑπόδικος γένηται πᾶς κόσμος τῷ θεῷ· 19 Obviously , {NEQ} {NEQ} the law applies to those to whom it was given {RPT} , for its purpose is to keep people from having excuses , and to show that the entire world is guilty before {NEQ} God .
Rom.4:13 13οὐ γὰρ διὰ νόμου ἐπαγγελία τῷ Ἀβραὰμ τῷ σπέρματι αὐτοῦ τὸ κληρονόμον αὐτὸν εἶναι κόσμου, ἀλλὰ διὰ δικαιοσύνης πίστεως. 13 Clearly , God’s promise {RPT} to give the whole earth to {NEQ} Abraham and his {NEQ} descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law , but on a right relationship with God that comes by faith .
Rom.5:12 12διὰ τοῦτο ὥσπερ δι᾽ ἑνὸς ἀνθρώπου, ἁμαρτία εἰς τὸν κόσμον εἰσῆλθεν· καὶ διὰ τῆς ἁμαρτίας θάνατος, καὶ οὕτως εἰς πάντας ἀνθρώπους θάνατος διῆλθεν, ἐφ᾽ πάντες ἥμαρτον. 12 {NEQ} {NEQ} When Adam sinned , {NEQ} sin entered {RPT} the world . {NEQ} Adam’s sin brought {NEQ} death , so {NEQ} death spread to everyone , for everyone sinned .
Rom.5:13 13ἄχρι γάρ, νόμου ἁμαρτία ἦν ἐν κόσμῳ· ἁμαρτία δὲ οὐκ ἐλλογεῖται μὴ ὄντος νόμου· 13 Yes , people sinned even before the law was given . But it was not counted as sin because there was not yet any law to break .
Rom.11:12 12εἰ δὲ τὸ παράπτωμα αὐτῶν πλοῦτος κόσμου καὶ τὸ ἥττημα αὐτῶν πλοῦτος ἐθνῶν, πόσῳ μᾶλλον τὸ πλήρωμα αὐτῶν. 12 Now if the Gentiles were enriched because the people of Israel turned down God’s offer of salvation {RPT} , think how much greater a blessing the world will share when they finally accept it .
Rom.11:15 15εἰ γὰρ ἀποβολὴ αὐτῶν καταλλαγὴ κόσμου, τίς πρόσλημψις εἰ μὴ ζωὴ ἐκ νεκρῶν; 15 For since their {NEQ} rejection meant that God offered salvation to the rest of the world , their acceptance will be even more wonderful . It will be life for those who were dead !
1Cor.1:20 20ποῦ σοφός, ποῦ γραμματεύς, ποῦ συζητητὴς τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου; οὐχὶ ἐμώρανεν θεὸς τὴν σοφίαν τοῦ κόσμου; 20 So where does this leave the philosophers , {RPT} the scholars , and the {RPT} world’s brilliant debaters ? {NEQ} God {NEQ} has made the wisdom of this world look foolish .
1Cor.1:21 21ἐπειδὴ γὰρ ἐν τῇ σοφίᾳ τοῦ θεοῦ οὐκ ἔγνω κόσμος διὰ τῆς σοφίας τὸν θεόν, εὐδόκησεν θεὸς διὰ τῆς μωρίας τοῦ κηρύγματος σῶσαι τοὺς πιστεύοντας. 21 Since {NEQ} {NEQ} God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through {NEQ} human wisdom , he has used our {NEQ} foolish {NEQ} preaching to save those who believe .
1Cor.1:27 27ἀλλά, τὰ μωρὰ τοῦ κόσμου ἐξελέξατο θεὸς ἵνα καταισχύνῃ τοὺς σοφούς. καὶ τὰ ἀσθενῆ τοῦ κόσμου ἐξελέξατο θεὸς ἵνα καταισχύνῃ τὰ ἰσχυρά. 27 Instead , {NEQ} God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise . And he chose things that are powerless {RPT} {RPT} to shame those who are powerful .
1Cor.1:28 28καὶ τὰ ἀγενῆ τοῦ κόσμου, καὶ τὰ ἐξουθενημένα, ἐξελέξατο θεός, τὰ μὴ ὄντα, ἵνα τὰ ὄντα καταργήσῃ· 28   {NEQ} {NEQ} God chose things {RPT} despised by the world ,  *  things counted as nothing at all , and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important .
1Cor.2:12 12ἡμεῖς δὲ οὐ τὸ πνεῦμα τοῦ κόσμου ἐλάβομεν (ἀλλὰ τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ) ἵνα εἰδῶμεν τὰ ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ χαρισθέντα ἡμῖν. 12 And we {NEQ} have received {RPT} God’s {RPT} Spirit ( not the world’s {NEQ} spirit ) , so we can know the wonderful things {NEQ} God has freely given us .
1Cor.3:19 19 γὰρ σοφία τοῦ κόσμου τούτου μωρία παρὰ τῷ θεῷ ἐστίν· γέγραπται γάρ, δρασσόμενος τοὺς σοφοὺς ἐν τῇ πανουργίᾳ αὐτῶν. 19 For the wisdom of this {NEQ} world is foolishness to {NEQ} God . As the Scriptures say , He traps the wise in the snare of their own {NEQ} cleverness .  * 
1Cor.3:22 22εἴτε Παῦλος εἴτε Ἀπολλὼς εἴτε Κηφᾶς, εἴτε κόσμος, εἴτε ζωὴ εἴτε θάνατος, εἴτε ἐνεστῶτα εἴτε μέλλοντα· πάντα ὑμῶν, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Peter ,  *  or the world , or life and death , or the present and the future . Everything belongs to you ,
1Cor.4:9 9δοκῶ γάρ, θεὸς ἡμᾶς τοὺς ἀποστόλους ἐσχάτους ἀπέδειξεν, ὡς ἐπιθανατίους· ὅτι θέατρον ἐγενήθημεν τῷ κόσμῳ— καὶ ἀγγέλοις καὶ ἀνθρώποις. 9 Instead , I sometimes think {NEQ} God has put us {NEQ} apostles on display , like prisoners of war at the end of a victor’s parade , condemned to die . {NEQ} We have become a spectacle to the entire world to people and angels alike .
1Cor.4:13 13δυσφημούμενοι παρακαλοῦμεν· ὡς περικαθάρματα τοῦ κόσμου ἐγενήθημεν, πάντων περίψημα— ἕως ἄρτι. 13 We appeal gently when evil things are said about us . Yet we are treated like the world’s garbage , like everybody’s trash right up to the present moment .
1Cor.5:10 10οὐ πάντως τοῖς πόρνοις τοῦ κόσμου τούτου, τοῖς πλεονέκταις, καὶ ἅρπαξιν εἰδωλολάτραις. ἐπεὶ ὠφείλετε ἄρα ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου ἐξελθεῖν. 10 But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin , or are {NEQ} greedy , or cheat people , or worship idols . {NEQ} {NEQ} You would have to leave {RPT} {RPT} {RPT} {NEQ} this world to avoid people like that .
1Cor.6:2 2 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι οἱ ἅγιοι τὸν κόσμον κρινοῦσιν; καὶ εἰ ἐν ὑμῖν κρίνεται κόσμος, ἀνάξιοί ἐστε κριτηρίων ἐλαχίστων; 2 {NEQ} Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world ? And since you are going to judge the world , can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves ?
1Cor.7:31 31καὶ οἱ χρώμενοι τὸν κόσμον ὡς μὴ καταχρώμενοι· παράγει γὰρ τὸ σχῆμα τοῦ κόσμου τούτου. 31 {NEQ} Those who use the things of the world should not become attached to them . For this {NEQ} world as we know it will soon pass away .
1Cor.7:33 33 δὲ γαμήσας μεριμνᾷ τὰ τοῦ κόσμου πῶς ἀρέσῃ τῇ γυναικί· 33 But a married man has to think about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife .
1Cor.7:34 34καὶ μεμέρισται. καί, γυνὴ ἄγαμος καὶ παρθένος μεριμνᾷ τὰ τοῦ κυρίου ἵνα ἁγία καὶ τῷ σώματι καὶ τῷ πνεύματι. δὲ γαμήσασα μεριμνᾷ τὰ τοῦ κόσμου πῶς ἀρέσῃ τῷ ἀνδρί. 34 {NEQ} His interests are divided . In the same way , a woman who is no longer married or has never been married {NEQ} can be devoted to {NEQ} the Lord and holy in {NEQ} body and in {NEQ} spirit . But a married woman has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband .
1Cor.8:4 4περὶ τῆς βρώσεως οὖν τῶν εἰδωλοθύτων; οἴδαμεν ὅτι οὐδὲν εἴδωλον ἐν κόσμῳ καὶ ὅτι οὐδεὶς θεὸς εἰ μὴ εἷς. 4 So , what about {NEQ} eating {NEQ} meat that has been offered to idols ? Well , we all know that an idol is not really a god and that there is only one God .
1Cor.11:32 32κρινόμενοι δὲ ὑπὸ τοῦ κυρίου, παιδευόμεθα ἵνα μὴ σὺν τῷ κόσμῳ κατακριθῶμεν. 32 Yet when we are judged by the Lord , we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned along with the world .
1Cor.14:10 10τοσαῦτα εἰ τύχοι γένη φωνῶν εἰσὶν ἐν κόσμῳ, καὶ οὐδὲν ἄφωνον. 10 There are many {NEQ} {NEQ} different languages in the world , and every language has meaning .
2Cor.1:12 12 γὰρ καύχησις ἡμῶν αὕτη ἐστὶν τὸ μαρτύριον τῆς συνειδήσεως ἡμῶν ὅτι ἐν ἁγιότητι καὶ εἰλικρινείᾳ τοῦ θεοῦ· καὶ οὐκ ἐν σοφίᾳ σαρκικῇ, ἀλλ᾽ ἐν χάριτι θεοῦ· ἀνεστράφημεν ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ, περισσοτέρως δὲ πρὸς ὑμᾶς. 12 We {NEQ} {RPT} can say with {NEQ} confidence and a clear conscience that we have lived with a {NEQ} God-given holiness  *  and sincerity in all our dealings . We have depended on God’s grace , {NEQ} not on our own human wisdom . That is how we have conducted ourselves before the world , and especially toward you .
2Cor.5:19 19ὡς ὅτι θεὸς ἦν ἐν Χριστῷ, κόσμον καταλλάσσων ἑαυτῷ, μὴ λογιζόμενος αὐτοῖς τὰ παραπτώματα αὐτῶν· καὶ θέμενος ἐν ἡμῖν τὸν λόγον τῆς καταλλαγῆς. 19 For God was in Christ , reconciling the world to himself , no longer counting people’s {NEQ} sins against them . And he gave us this wonderful message of {NEQ} reconciliation .
2Cor.7:10 10 γὰρ κατὰ θεὸν λύπη μετάνοιαν εἰς σωτηρίαν ἀμεταμέλητον ἐργάζεται. δὲ τοῦ κόσμου λύπη, θάνατον κατεργάζεται. 10 For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation . There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow . But {NEQ} worldly {NEQ} sorrow , which lacks repentance , results in spiritual death .
Gal.4:3 3οὕτως καὶ ἡμεῖς· ὅτε ἦμεν νήπιοι, ὑπὸ τὰ στοιχεῖα τοῦ κόσμου ἤμεθα δεδουλωμένοι. 3   And that’s the way it was with us before Christ came . {NEQ} We were like children ; we were slaves to the basic spiritual principles * of this world .
Gal.6:14 14ἐμοὶ δέ, μὴ γένοιτο καυχᾶσθαι εἰ μὴ ἐν τῷ σταυρῷ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ· δι᾽ οὗ, ἐμοὶ κόσμος ἐσταύρωται, κἀγὼ κόσμῳ. 14 As for me , may I never boast about anything except the cross of our {NEQ} Lord Jesus Christ . Because of that cross ,  *  my interest in this world has been crucified , and the world’s interest in me has also died .
Eph.1:4 4καθὼς ἐξελέξατο ἡμᾶς ἐν αὐτῷ, πρὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου, εἶναι ἡμᾶς ἁγίους καὶ ἀμώμους κατενώπιον αὐτοῦ ἐν ἀγάπῃ· 4 Even before he made the world , God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes .
Eph.2:2 2ἐν αἷς ποτὲ περιεπατήσατε, κατὰ τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ κόσμου τούτου, κατὰ τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς ἐξουσίας τοῦ ἀέρος· τοῦ πνεύματος τοῦ νῦν ἐνεργοῦντος ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς τῆς ἀπειθείας· 2 You used to live in sin , just like the rest of the world , obeying the devil the commander of the powers in the unseen world .  *  He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who {NEQ} refuse to obey God .
Eph.2:12 12ὅτι ἦτε τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ χωρὶς Χριστοῦ· ἀπηλλοτριωμένοι τῆς πολιτείας τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, καὶ ξένοι τῶν διαθηκῶν τῆς ἐπαγγελίας· ἐλπίδα μὴ ἔχοντες καὶ ἄθεοι ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ. 12 {NEQ} In those days you were living apart from Christ . You were excluded from {NEQ} citizenship among the people of {NEQ} Israel , and you did not know the covenant {NEQ} promises God had made to them . You lived in this world without God and without hope .
Phil.2:15 15ἵνα γένησθε ἄμεμπτοι καὶ ἀκέραιοι· τέκνα θεοῦ ἄμωμα, μέσον γενεᾶς σκολιᾶς καὶ διεστραμμένης ἐν οἷς φαίνεσθε ὡς φωστῆρες ἐν κόσμῳ· 15 so that no one can criticize you . {NEQ} Live clean , innocent lives as children of God , {RPT} shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people .
Col.1:6 6τοῦ παρόντος εἰς ὑμᾶς καθὼς καὶ ἐν παντὶ τῷ κόσμῳ· ἐστὶν καρποφορούμενον καὶ αὐξανόμενον, καθὼς καὶ ἐν ὑμῖν ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας ἠκούσατε καὶ ἐπέγνωτε τὴν χάριν τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν ἀληθείᾳ· 6   This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world . It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives , just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about {NEQ} God’s wonderful grace .
Col.2:8 8βλέπετε μή τις ὑμᾶς ἔσται συλαγωγῶν διὰ τῆς φιλοσοφίας καὶ κενῆς ἀπάτης κατὰ τὴν παράδοσιν τῶν ἀνθρώπων κατὰ τὰ στοιχεῖα τοῦ κόσμου, καὶ οὐ κατὰ Χριστόν· 8 Don’t let anyone {NEQ} capture you with {NEQ} empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from {NEQ} human thinking and from the spiritual powers  *  of this world , rather than from Christ .
Col.2:20 20εἰ ἀπεθάνετε σὺν Χριστῷ, ἀπὸ τῶν στοιχείων τοῦ κόσμου· τί ὡς ζῶντες ἐν κόσμῳ δογματίζεσθε, 20 {NEQ} You have died with Christ , and he has set you free from the spiritual powers of this world . So why do you keep on following the rules of the world , such as ,
1Tim.1:15 15πιστὸς λόγος, καὶ πάσης ἀποδοχῆς ἄξιος ὅτι· Χριστὸς Ἰησοῦς ἦλθεν εἰς τὸν κόσμον ἁμαρτωλοὺς σῶσαι— ὧν πρῶτός εἰμι ἐγώ. 15 This is a trustworthy saying , and everyone should accept it : Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners and I am the worst of them all .
1Tim.3:16 16καὶ ὁμολογουμένως, μέγα ἐστὶν τὸ τῆς εὐσεβείας μυστήριον· ὃς ἐφανερώθη ἐν σαρκὶ ἐδικαιώθη ἐν πνεύματι· ὤφθη ἀγγέλοις ἐκηρύχθη ἐν ἔθνεσιν· ἐπιστεύθη ἐν κόσμῳ ἀνελήμφθη ἐν δόξῃ. 16 Without question , this is the great mystery of our faith  *  : Christ  *  was revealed in a human body and vindicated by the Spirit .  *  He was seen by angels and announced to the nations . He was believed in throughout the world and taken to heaven in glory .
1Tim.6:7 7οὐδέν, γάρ, εἰσηνέγκαμεν εἰς τὸν κόσμον, ὅτι οὐδὲ ἐξενεγκεῖν τι δυνάμεθα· 7 After all , we brought nothing with us when we came into the world , {NEQ} and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it .
Heb.4:3 3εἰσερχόμεθα γὰρ εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσιν οἱ πιστεύσαντες· καθώς, εἴρηκεν, Ὡς ὤμοσα ἐν τῇ ὀργῇ μου· εἰ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσίν μου, καίτοι τῶν ἔργων ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου γενηθέντων. 3 For only we who believe can enter {RPT} his {NEQ} rest . As for the others , God said , In my {NEQ} anger {NEQ} I took an oath : They will never enter {RPT} my place of {NEQ} rest ,  *  even though this rest has been ready since he made the world .
Heb.9:26 26ἐπεὶ ἔδει, αὐτὸν πολλάκις παθεῖν, ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου· νυνὶ δέ, ἅπαξ, ἐπὶ συντελείᾳ τῶν αἰώνων εἰς ἀθέτησιν τῆς ἁμαρτίας διὰ τῆς θυσίας αὐτοῦ πεφανέρωται. 26 If that had been necessary , Christ would have had to die again and again , ever since the world began . But now , once for all time , he has appeared at the end of the age  *  to remove {NEQ} sin by his own death as a sacrifice .
Heb.10:5 5διό, εἰσερχόμενος εἰς τὸν κόσμον λέγει, Θυσίαν καὶ προσφορὰν οὐκ ἠθέλησας· σῶμα δὲ κατηρτίσω μοι· 5 That is why , when Christ  *  came into {RPT} the world , he said to God , You did not want animal sacrifices or sin offerings . But you have given me a body to offer .
Heb.11:7 7πίστει χρηματισθεὶς Νῶε περὶ τῶν μηδέπω βλεπομένων, εὐλαβηθεὶς κατεσκεύασεν κιβωτὸν εἰς σωτηρίαν τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ· δι᾽ ἧς κατέκρινεν τὸν κόσμον, καὶ τῆς κατὰ πίστιν δικαιοσύνης ἐγένετο κληρονόμος. 7 It was by faith that Noah built a large boat to save his {NEQ} family from the flood . He obeyed God , who warned him about things that had never happened before . By his faith Noah condemned the rest of the world , and he received the righteousness that comes by {NEQ} faith .
Heb.11:38 38ὧν οὐκ ἦν ἄξιος κόσμος, ἐπὶ ἐρημίαις πλανώμενοι καὶ ὄρεσι, καὶ σπηλαίοις καὶ ταῖς ὀπαῖς τῆς γῆς. 38 They were too good for this world , wandering over deserts and mountains , hiding {NEQ} in caves and {NEQ} holes in the ground .
Jas.1:27 27θρησκεία καθαρὰ καὶ ἀμίαντος παρὰ τῷ θεῷ καὶ πατρὶ αὕτη ἐστὶν ἐπισκέπτεσθαι ὀρφανοὺς καὶ χήρας ἐν τῇ θλίψει αὐτῶν ἄσπιλον ἑαυτὸν τηρεῖν ἀπὸ τοῦ κόσμου. 27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of {NEQ} God {NEQ} the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their {NEQ} distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you .
Jas.2:5 5ἀκούσατε, ἀδελφοί μου ἀγαπητοί. οὐχ θεὸς ἐξελέξατο τοὺς πτωχοὺς τῷ κόσμῳ πλουσίους ἐν πίστει καὶ κληρονόμους τῆς βασιλείας ἧς ἐπηγγείλατο τοῖς ἀγαπῶσιν αὐτόν; 5 Listen to me , dear brothers and sisters . Hasn’t {NEQ} God chosen the poor in this world to be rich in faith ? {NEQ} Aren’t they the ones who will inherit the Kingdom {RPT} he promised to those who love him ?
Jas.3:6 6καὶ γλῶσσα πῦρ· κόσμος τῆς ἀδικίας γλῶσσα καθίσταται ἐν τοῖς μέλεσιν ἡμῶν, σπιλοῦσα ὅλον τὸ σῶμα· καὶ φλογίζουσα τὸν τροχὸν τῆς γενέσεως καὶ φλογιζομένη ὑπὸ τῆς γεέννης. 6 And the tongue is a flame of fire . It is {RPT} {RPT} {RPT} a whole world of {NEQ} wickedness {RPT} {RPT} , {NEQ} corrupting your entire {NEQ} body . {NEQ} It can set your whole life on fire , for it is set on fire by {NEQ} hell itself .  * 
Jas.4:4 4μοιχαλίδες· οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι φιλία τοῦ κόσμου ἔχθρα τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστίν; ὃς ἐὰν οὖν βουληθῇ φίλος εἶναι τοῦ κόσμου, ἐχθρὸς τοῦ θεοῦ καθίσταται. 4 You adulterers !  *  Don’t you realize that {NEQ} friendship with the world makes you an enemy of {NEQ} God ? I say it again : If you want to be a friend of the world , you make yourself an enemy of {NEQ} God .
1Pet.1:20 20προεγνωσμένου μὲν πρὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου, φανερωθέντος δὲ ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν χρόνων δι᾽ ὑμᾶς· 20 God chose him as your ransom {RPT} long before {RPT} the world began , but he has now revealed him to you in these last {NEQ} days .
1Pet.3:3 3ὧν ἔστω οὐχ ἔξωθεν ἐμπλοκῆς τριχῶν, καὶ περιθέσεως χρυσίων, ἐνδύσεως ἱματίων κόσμος· 3 Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles , {NEQ} expensive jewelry , or beautiful clothes .
1Pet.5:9 9 ἀντίστητε, στερεοὶ τῇ πίστει· εἰδότες τὰ αὐτὰ τῶν παθημάτων τῇ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ὑμῶν ἀδελφότητι ἐπιτελεῖσθαι. 9 Stand firm against him , and be strong in your faith . Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters  *  {NEQ} all over the world are going through the same kind of {NEQ} suffering you are .
2Pet.1:4 4δι᾽ ὧν τὰ τίμια καὶ μέγιστα ἡμῖν ἐπαγγέλματα δεδώρηται· ἵνα διὰ τούτων γένησθε θείας κοινωνοὶ φύσεως ἀποφυγόντες τῆς ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ἐν ἐπιθυμίᾳ φθορᾶς. 4 And because of his glory and excellence , he has given us {NEQ} great and precious promises . These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the {RPT} {NEQ} world’s corruption caused by human desires .
2Pet.2:5 5καὶ ἀρχαίου κόσμου οὐκ ἐφείσατο— ἀλλὰ ὄγδοον Νῶε δικαιοσύνης κήρυκα ἐφύλαξεν· κατακλυσμὸν κόσμῳ ἀσεβῶν ἐπάξας· 5 And God did not spare the ancient world except for Noah and the seven others in his family . Noah warned the world of God’s righteous judgment . So God protected Noah when he destroyed the world of ungodly people with a vast flood .
2Pet.2:20 20εἰ γὰρ ἀποφυγόντες τὰ μιάσματα τοῦ κόσμου ἐν ἐπιγνώσει τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν καὶ σωτῆρος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τούτοις δὲ πάλιν ἐμπλακέντες ἡττῶνται, γέγονεν αὐτοῖς τὰ ἔσχατα χείρονα τῶν πρώτων. 20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our {NEQ} Lord and Savior Jesus Christ {RPT} and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again , they are worse off than {NEQ} before .
2Pet.3:6 6δι᾽ ὧν τότε κόσμος ὕδατι κατακλυσθεὶς ἀπώλετο· 6 Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood .
1Jn.2:2 2καὶ αὐτὸς ἱλασμός ἐστιν περὶ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ἡμῶν— οὐ περὶ τῶν ἡμετέρων δὲ μόνον ἀλλὰ καὶ περὶ ὅλου τοῦ κόσμου. 2 {NEQ} He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our {NEQ} sins and not only {RPT} our {NEQ} sins but the sins of all the world .
1Jn.2:15 15μὴ ἀγαπᾶτε τὸν κόσμον μηδὲ τὰ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ, ἐάν τις ἀγαπᾷ τὸν κόσμον, οὐκ ἔστιν ἀγάπη τοῦ πατρὸς ἐν αὐτῷ. 15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you , for when you love the world , you do not have the love of the Father in you .
1Jn.2:16 16ὅτι πᾶν τὸ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ, ἐπιθυμία τῆς σαρκός, καὶ ἐπιθυμία τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν καὶ ἀλαζονεία τοῦ βίου. οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ τοῦ πατρός· ἀλλὰ ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου ἐστίν. 16 For the world offers only a craving {NEQ} for physical pleasure , {NEQ} a craving for everything we {NEQ} see , and {NEQ} pride in our achievements and possessions . These are not from the Father , but are from this world .
1Jn.2:17 17καὶ κόσμος παράγεται, καὶ ἐπιθυμία αὐτοῦ· δὲ ποιῶν τὸ θέλημα τοῦ θεοῦ μένει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. 17 And this world is fading away , along with everything that people crave {RPT} . But anyone who does what pleases {NEQ} God will live forever .
1Jn.3:1 1ἴδετε ποταπὴν ἀγάπην δέδωκεν ἡμῖν πατήρ, ἵνα τέκνα θεοῦ κληθῶμεν, καὶ ἐσμέν· διὰ τοῦτο κόσμος οὐ γινώσκει ἡμᾶς ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνω αὐτόν. 3:1 See how very much our {NEQ} Father loves us , for he calls us his children , and that is what we are ! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him .
1Jn.3:13 13καὶ μὴ θαυμάζετε, ἀδελφοί, εἰ μισεῖ ὑμᾶς κόσμος. 13 So don’t be surprised , dear brothers and sisters ,  *  if the world hates you .
1Jn.3:17 17ὃς δ᾽ ἂν ἔχῃ τὸν βίον τοῦ κόσμου καὶ θεωρῇ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ χρείαν ἔχοντα καὶ κλείσῃ τὰ σπλάγχνα αὐτοῦ ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ— πῶς ἀγάπη τοῦ θεοῦ μένει ἐν αὐτῷ; 17 If someone has {NEQ} enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister {RPT}  *  in need but shows no compassion {RPT} {RPT} how can {NEQ} God’s {NEQ} love be in that person ?
1Jn.4:1 1ἀγαπητοί, μὴ παντὶ πνεύματι πιστεύετε· ἀλλὰ δοκιμάζετε τὰ πνεύματα εἰ ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστίν· ὅτι πολλοὶ ψευδοπροφῆται ἐξεληλύθασιν εἰς τὸν κόσμον. 4:1 Dear friends , do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit . {NEQ} You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from {NEQ} God . For there are many false prophets in the world .
1Jn.4:3 3καὶ πᾶν πνεῦμα μὴ ὁμολογεῖ τὸν Ἰησοῦν, ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ οὐκ ἔστιν· καὶ τοῦτό ἐστιν τὸ τοῦ ἀντιχρίστου, ἀκηκόατε ὅτι ἔρχεται, καὶ νῦν ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ἐστὶν ἤδη. 3 But if someone claims to be a prophet and {RPT} does not acknowledge the truth about {NEQ} Jesus , that person is not from {NEQ} God . {NEQ} Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist , which you heard {NEQ} is coming into the world and indeed is already here .
1Jn.4:4 4ὑμεῖς ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστέ, τεκνία· καὶ νενικήκατε αὐτούς, ὅτι μείζων ἐστὶν ἐν ὑμῖν ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ. 4 But you belong to {NEQ} God , my dear children . {NEQ} You have already won a victory over those people , because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world .
1Jn.4:5 5αὐτοὶ ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου εἰσίν, διὰ τοῦτο ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου λαλοῦσιν, καὶ κόσμος αὐτῶν ἀκούει. 5 Those people belong to this world , so they speak from the world’s viewpoint , and the world listens to them .
1Jn.4:9 9ἐν τούτῳ ἐφανερώθη ἀγάπη τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν ἡμῖν ὅτι τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ τὸν μονογενῆ ἀπέσταλκεν θεὸς εἰς τὸν κόσμον ἵνα ζήσωμεν δι᾽ αὐτοῦ. 9 {NEQ} God showed how much he {NEQ} loved us by sending his {RPT} {RPT} {NEQ} one and only {NEQ} Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him .
1Jn.4:14 14καί, ἡμεῖς τεθεάμεθα καὶ μαρτυροῦμεν ὅτι πατὴρ ἀπέσταλκεν τὸν υἱὸν σωτῆρα τοῦ κόσμου. 14 Furthermore , we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world .
1Jn.4:17 17ἐν τούτῳ, τετελείωται ἀγάπη μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν· ἵνα παρρησίαν ἔχωμεν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῆς κρίσεως, ὅτι καθὼς ἐκεῖνός ἐστιν καὶ ἡμεῖς ἐσμὲν ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ τούτῳ. 17 And as we live in God , {NEQ} our {NEQ} love grows more perfect . So we will not be afraid on the day of {NEQ} judgment , but we can face him with confidence because {NEQ} {NEQ} we live like Jesus here in this {NEQ} world .
1Jn.5:4 4ὅτι πᾶν τὸ γεγεννημένον ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ νικᾷ τὸν κόσμον, καὶ αὕτη ἐστὶν νίκη νικήσασα τὸν κόσμον πίστις ἡμῶν. 4 For every child of {NEQ} God defeats this evil world , and we achieve this {NEQ} victory through our {RPT} {RPT} {NEQ} faith .
1Jn.5:5 5τίς ἐστιν δὲ νικῶν τὸν κόσμον, εἰ μὴ πιστεύων ὅτι Ἰησοῦς ἐστὶν υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ; 5 And who can {NEQ} win this battle against the world ? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of {NEQ} God .
1Jn.5:19 19οἴδαμεν ὅτι ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐσμὲν καὶ κόσμος ὅλος ἐν τῷ πονηρῷ κεῖται. 19 We know that we are children of {NEQ} God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one .
2Jn.1:7 7ὅτι πολλοὶ πλάνοι ἐξῆλθαν εἰς τὸν κόσμον· οἱ μὴ ὁμολογοῦντες Ἰησοῦν Χριστὸν ἐρχόμενον ἐν σαρκί. οὗτός ἐστιν πλάνος καὶ ἀντίχριστος. 7 I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world . They deny that Jesus Christ came  *  in a real body . Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist .
Rev.11:15 15καὶ ἕβδομος ἄγγελος ἐσάλπισεν, καὶ ἐγένοντο φωναὶ μεγάλαι ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ λέγοντες· Ἐγένετο βασιλεία τοῦ κόσμου τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν καὶ τοῦ Χριστοῦ αὐτοῦ, καὶ βασιλεύσει εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων. 15 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet , and there were loud voices shouting in {NEQ} heaven : The world has now become the Kingdom of our {NEQ} Lord and of his {NEQ} Christ ,  *  and he will reign forever and ever .
Rev.13:8 8καὶ προσκυνήσουσιν αὐτὸν πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς· οὗ οὐ γέγραπται τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τῆς ζωῆς— τοῦ ἀρνίου τοῦ ἐσφαγμένου— ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου. 8 And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast . They are the ones whose names {RPT} were not written in the Book of {NEQ} Life before the world was made the Book that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered .  * 
Rev.17:8 8τὸ θηρίον εἶδες ἦν καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν· καὶ μέλλει ἀναβαίνειν ἐκ τῆς ἀβύσσου καὶ εἰς ἀπώλειαν ὑπάγει· καὶ θαυμασθήσονται οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὧν οὐ γέγραπται τὸ ὄνομα ἐπὶ τὸ βιβλίον τῆς ζωῆς ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου, βλεπόντων τὸ θηρίον ὅτι ἦν καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν καὶ παρέσται. 8 The beast {RPT} you saw was once alive but isn’t now . And yet he will soon come up out of the bottomless pit  *  and go to eternal destruction . And the people who belong to this world , whose {NEQ} names were not written in the Book of {NEQ} Life before the world was made , will be amazed at {RPT} the reappearance of this beast {NEQ} who {NEQ} had died .
