24:9 – “You will be hated by pantaon ton ethnon for my sake.”
24:14 (cf. Mark 13:10) – “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to pasin tois ethnesin; and then the end will come.”
25:32 – “Before him will be gathered panta ta ethne, and He will separate them one from another…”
28:19 – “Make disciples of panta ta ethne.”

11:17 – “My house shall be called a house of prayer for pasin tols ethnesin (cf. Isaiah 56:17)

12:30 – “For panta ta ethne of the world seek these things.”
21:24 – “They will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led captive among ta ethne panta.”
24:47 – “Repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in His name to panta ta ethne, beginning from Jerusalem.”

15:17 – “…that the rest of men may seek the Lord, and panta ta ethne who are called by my name.”
17:26 – “And he made from one pan ethnos of men to live on all the face of the earth…”

1:5 – “We have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among pasin tois ethnesin.”
