“all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth” (Gen. 6:12).

Flesh is used for the whole person.

“And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. ’” (Luke 12:19).

Soul is used for the whole person.

“For God so loved the world” (John 3:16).

“World” is used for the people in the world.

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Tim. 3:16).

“All Scripture” is used for every part of Scripture.
