56:4 For this is what the Lord says:
“For the eunuchs who observe my Sabbaths
and choose what pleases me
and are faithful to 1 my covenant,
56:5 I will set up within my temple and my walls a monument 2
that will be better than sons and daughters.
I will set up a permanent monument 3 for them that will remain.
56:6 As for foreigners who become followers of 4 the Lord and serve him,
who love the name of the Lord and want to be his servants –
all who observe the Sabbath and do not defile it,
and who are faithful to 5 my covenant –
