The remotest parts of the globe. The phrase first appeared in the Bible: “All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God” (Psalms 98:3). This turn of phrase is based on the idea of a flat earth, which actually has “ends.” Nevertheless, it survived the general acknowledgment that the globe is spherical and was a cliché by the late nineteenth century.
