See the same phraseology applied to Syria, Palestine, etc. "Andª it came to passª° inª thoseª days,ª that there went outª° a decreeª fromª Caesarª Augustus,ª that allª the¹ worldª should be taxed.ª°" {Lke 2:1} + "Andª there stood upª° oneª ofª themª namedª Agabus,ª and signifiedª° byª the¹ Spiritª that there should¹ beª²°° greatª dearthª throughoutª allª the¹ world:ª whichªª came to passª° in the days ofª Claudiusª Caesar.ª" {Act 11:28}
