The World. In prophecy, "the world" refers to the entire planet earth. This is no surprise, but it is important to distinguish it from "the earth" which in prophecy refers to a restricted area.
“Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech and there are no words, yet their voice is heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their language to the extremity of the world.” Psalm 19:2-4
“And the seventh angel sounded his trumpet: and there were great voices in the heaven, saying, The kingdom of the world of our Lord and of his Christ is come, and he shall reign to the ages of ages.” Revelation 11:15
