Isaiah 56:3-5


56:3 No foreigner who becomes a follower of 1  the Lord should say,

‘The Lord will certainly 2  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 3  my covenant,

56:5 I will set up within my temple and my walls a monument 4 

that will be better than sons and daughters.

I will set up a permanent monument 5  for them that will remain.

1 tn Heb “who attaches himself to.”

2 tn The infinitive absolute precedes the finite verb for emphasis.

3 tn Heb “and take hold of” (so KJV); NASB “hold fast.”

4 tn Heb “a hand and a name.” For other examples where יָד (yad) refers to a monument, see HALOT 388 s.v.

5 tn Heb “name” (so KJV, NIV, NRSV).
