Isaiah 56:4-7


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 –

56:7 I will bring them to my holy mountain;

I will make them happy in the temple where people pray to me. 6 

Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar,

for my temple will be known as a temple where all nations may pray.” 7
