Ephesians 2:12

12 That you were at that time 1apart from Christ, aalienated from the 2commonwealth of bIsrael, and strangers to the 3ccovenants of the promise, having 4dno hope and 5without God in the 6world.

126 The world, which is the system of Satan, is in contrast to the commonwealth of Israel. The commonwealth of Israel was the kingdom of God, whereas the world is the kingdom of Satan. Before we were saved, we lived in the world, where we had no hope as our expectation and no God as our enjoyment; we were empty both in the present age and in relation to the coming age.
