Powers of this dark world" (kosmokratoras tou skortous toutou ) would translate better as "world rulers of this darkness." In Greek literature, Orphic hymns and Rabbinic writings, kosmokratoras , signifies a world-lord, ruler of the whole world. Eph. 6:12 is the only place the word is used in the New Testament.
