and become His servants,
all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it
and who hold firmly to My covenant—
7 I will bring them to My holy mountain e
and let them rejoice in My house of prayer.
Their * burnt offerings and sacrifices
will be acceptable on My altar, f
for My house will be called a house of prayer
for all nations.” g

9 All you animals of the field and forest,
come and eat!
10 Israel’s i watchmen are blind, all of them,
they know nothing;

they cannot bark;
they dream, lie down,
and love to sleep.
they never have enough.
And they are shepherds
who have no discernment;
all of them turn to their own way,
every last one for his own gain. j
let’s guzzle some beer;
and tomorrow will be like today,
only far better!” k
