“my salvation to the end of the earth.” The salvation and everlasting life given by the Messiah was not just for the Jews, even though many of them thought that it was. The Old Testament has a number of verses that spoke of Gentiles being included in the Messianic Kingdom, which meant they were granted everlasting life (Ps. 102:15; Isa. 2:2-4; 19:23-25; 42:6; 49:6; 51:4-5; 56:3-7; 60:3; 66:18-21; Ezek. 39:21, 27; Micah 4:2; Hag. 2:7; Zech. 8:22). [For more information on the Messiah being a blessing to the Gentiles, the nations, see commentary on Isa. 42:6].
