'World' in the Bible

Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

Because that which the world deems foolish in God is wiser than men's wisdom, and that which it deems feeble in God is mightier than men's might.

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

For when some one says, "I belong to Paul," and another says, "I belong to Apollos," is not this the way men of the world speak?

There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the affairs of the Lord, so that she may be holy in body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world, that is, about how she can please her husband. I'm saying this for your benefit, not to put a noose around your necks, but to promote good order and unhindered devotion to the Lord.
