Isaiah 56:2–8

2 Blessed is the man who does this,

And the son of man who lays hold on it;

bWho keeps from defiling the Sabbath,

And keeps his hand from doing any evil.”

3 Do not let cthe son of the foreigner

Who has joined himself to the Lord

Speak, saying,

“The Lord has utterly separated me from His people”;

Nor let the deunuch say,

“Here I am, a dry tree.”

4 For thus says the Lord:

“To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths,

And choose what pleases Me,

And hold fast My covenant,

5 Even to them I will give in eMy house

And within My walls a place fand a name

Better than that of sons and daughters;

I will give 1them an everlasting name

That shall not be cut off.

6 “Also the sons of the foreigner

Who join themselves to the Lord, to serve Him,

And to love the name of the Lord, to be His servants—

Everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath,

And holds fast My covenant—

7 Even them I will gbring to My holy mountain,

And make them joyful in My hhouse of prayer.

iTheir burnt offerings and their sacrifices

Will be jaccepted on My altar;

For kMy house shall be called a house of prayer lfor all nations.”

8 The Lord God, mwho gathers the outcasts of Israel, says,

n“Yet I will gather to him

Others besides those who are gathered to him.”
