American Standard Version
45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with jealousy, and contradicted the things which were spoken by Paul, and [a]blasphemed. 46 And Paul and Barnabas spake out boldly, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first be spoken to you. Seeing ye thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying,
[b]I have set thee for a light of the Gentiles,
That thou shouldest be for salvation unto the uttermost part of the earth.
48 And as the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of [c]God: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.Read full chapter

45 But when (A)the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were [a]blaspheming. 46 Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you (B)first; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, (C)we are turning to the Gentiles. 47 For so the Lord has commanded us,
‘(D)I have placed You as a (E)light for the Gentiles,
That You may [b]bring salvation to the end of the earth.’”
48 When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying (F)the word of [c]the Lord; and as many as (G)had been appointed to eternal life believed.Read full chapter
