“He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:10 He was in the world - Even from the creation.
Joh 1:10 He was in the world, etc. This verse declares: (1) That he "was" in the world, (2) the world was made by him, (3) it did not recognize him. The world is humanity in general, which "knew him not".
