Acts 13:46-49

46 Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, and said, "It was necessary that God's word should be spoken to you first. Since indeed you thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.  47 For so has the Lord commanded us, saying,  'I have set you as a light for the Gentiles,  That you should bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.'"

48 As the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of God. As many as were appointed to eternal life believed.  49 The Lord's word was spread abroad throughout all the region.
