(Strong's #2885 — Verb — kosmeo — kos-meh'-o )

primarily "to arrange, to put in order" (Eng., "cosmetic"), is used of furnishing a room, Matthew 12:44; Luke 11:25 , and of trimming lamps, Matthew 25:7 . Hence, "to adorn, to ornament," as of garnishing tombs, Matthew 23:29; buildings, Luke 21:5; Revelation 21:19; one's person, 1 Timothy 2:9; 1 Peter 3:5; Revelation 21:2; metaphorically, of "adorning a doctrine," Titus 2:10 . See GARNISH , TRIM.

B — 1: κόσμος

(Strong's #2889 — Noun Masculine — kosmos — kos'-mos )

"a harmonious arrangement or order," then, "adornment, decoration," came to denote "the world, or the universe, as that which is Divinely arranged." The meaning "adorning" is found in 1 Peter 3:3 . Elsewhere it signifies "the world." Cp. kosmios, decent, modest, 1 Timothy 2:9; 3:2 . See WORLD.
