Isaiah 56:2-6


56:2 The people who do this will be blessed, 1 

the people who commit themselves to obedience, 2 

who observe the Sabbath and do not defile it,

who refrain from doing anything that is wrong. 3 

56:3 No foreigner who becomes a follower of 4  the Lord should say,

‘The Lord will certainly 5  exclude me from his people.’

The eunuch should not say,

‘Look, I am like a dried-up tree.’”

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 6  my covenant,

56:5 I will set up within my temple and my walls a monument 7 

that will be better than sons and daughters.

I will set up a permanent monument 8  for them that will remain.

56:6 As for foreigners who become followers of 9  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 10  my covenant –
