Acts 2:5 - apo pantos eqnous twn upo ton ouranon

I don't know how to parse the last 4 words in this verse, TWN UPO TON OURANON:

Acts 2:5 (GNT) hsan de eis Ierousalhm katoikountes Ioudaioi, andres eulabeis
apo pantos eqnous twn upo ton ouranon.

Acts 2:5 (NASU) Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem, devout men from
every nation under heaven.

What does TWN refer to? It doesn't seem to be EQNOUS -- TWN is plural,
EQNOUS is singular.
