Genesis 1:10 in Greek:

καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ θεὸς τὴν ξηρὰν γῆν καὶ τὰ συστήματα τῶν ὑδάτων ἐκάλεσεν θαλάσσας. καὶ εἶδεν ὁ θεὸς ὅτι καλόν.

Transliteration: And called The God the [dry land] earth and the [gathering together] the waters Seas and saw The God that good.

Genesis 1:10 in Hebrew:

.וַיִּקְרָא אֱלֹהִים לַיַּבָּשָׁה אֶרֶץ, וּלְמִקְוֵה הַמַּיִם קָרָא יַמִּים; וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים, כִּי-טוֹב

Transliteration: And said God let be gathered together the waters under the heaven unto place one and let appear the dry land and it was so And called God the dry Earth and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas And saw God that good.

Genesis 1:10 in English (KJV):

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.


Earth in this sense is clearly referring to land and not the planet earth as a whole.
