I look up the meaning of the word Earth, and found the Hebrew word which is, and means
From an unused root probably meaning to be firm; the earth (at large, or partitively a land): - X common, country, earth, field, ground, land, X nations, way, + wilderness, world.
It is used also in:
Gen 1:10 And God called the dry land, Earth; and the gathering together of the waters, he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:9 God also said; Let the waters that are under the heaven, be gathered together into one place: and let the dry land appear. And it was so done.
The same Hebrew word is also used for "land".
The word earth must not be considering people, as people is what would make the earth not not full of Glory, as people have the free will to be Glorious or not. Earth on it own, would just do what God has intended it to do from the begining of time. Show the Glory of God.

In Luke 1:28 Mary is said to be "full" of grace, we take this as a sign of her sinlessness. If she is full of grace, there is no room for sin. Isaiah 6:3 says (quoting from Douay Rheims) "all the Earth is full of His glory" which we repeat in the Sanctus during Mass.
If Mary's being "full" of grace makes her sinless, wouldn't Earth's being "full" of God's glory make Earth sinless? Which of course it is not. Obviously Isaiah didn't have a vision where the angels glorifying God said "the Earth is filled with much of your glory, except where people are sinning in which case your glory is not present" or he would have said that. Or is it meant that God's glory is present while people are sinning? Were the WWII concentration camps "full" of God's glory? That seems blasphemous. How to reconcile?
Thanks in advance for ideas and answers.
