I understand the point of the question, but, in my opinion, there is no significant difference indicated by the wording. The meaning is intended to be the same. It's just a matter of how idiomatic expressions are customarily phrased. I haven't studied Hebrew, but, even in English, we might alternatively say (for example), "There's nothing else like it in the world.", or "There's nothing else like it on earth." We would be meaning the same thing in both cases, even though we would not normally say "on the world" or "in earth". Also, many languages have words that can be translated in multiple ways into English. For instance, the word "in" in Latin can be translated into English (among various meanings) as either "in" or "on", depending on the context, or on the choice of the translator.
