Hovering over the word "world" (kosmos) in John 15:18 yields a very strange "Bible Sense" result in the Information Window:

When I open the Bible Sense Lexicon and type "world" I am given the option of "world system" which gives John 15:18 as a reference. "World system" is a reasonable meaning for "kosmos" in John 15:18. "People of the Psalms" is not.

The description given indicates that it refers to "people" in the Psalms, not "People of the Psalms". Perhaps there is some sort of thought typo here.

Note that "world system" is a subset of "people" i.e. in this case "world" is a figure of speech referring to the humans residing in the world - especially "worldly humans".  I suspect that it should be reported as an error in coding but ...

I reaffirm...the reference should be to "people" in the Psalms, (i.e. "people" as referenced in the Psalms). The epithet "People of the Psalms" has the unavoidable connotation (indeed, the denotation) of "people who keep, sing, write, or pray the Psalms", which is not what the article is putting forth as the meaning. This is a simple misuse of English phraseology and grammar.

I believe the Bible Sense Lexicon is part of the data sets included in Logos 5. I have Logos 5.2, so I assume I have the latest version.
