Isaiah 56

1 Thus saith יהוה, “Keep you justice, and do righteousness, for My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed.

2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the Shabbat from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.”

3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to יהוה, speak, saying, “יהוה hath utterly separated me from His people”; nor let the eunuch say, “Behold, I am a dry tree.”

4 For thus saith יהוה: “Unto the eunuchs that keep My Shabbats, and choose the things that please Me, and take hold of My covenant;

5 Even unto them will I give in Mine house and within My walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters; I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to יהוה, to serve Him, and to love the name of יהוה, to be His servants, every one that keepeth the Shabbat from polluting it, and taketh hold of My covenant;

7 Even them will I bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon Mine altar; for Mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”

8 Lord (Adonai) יהוה who gathereth the outcasts of Yisrael saith, “Yet will I gather others to him, besides those that are gathered unto him.”

9 All you beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all you beasts in the forest.

10 His watchmen are blind; they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

12 “Come you,” say they, “I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.”
