Isaiah 56

56:1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for
 my salvation [is] near to come, and my righteousness to be
56:2 Blessed [is] the man [that] doeth this, and the son of man
 [that] layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from
 profaning it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
56:3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined
 himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly
 separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say,
 Behold, I [am] a dry tree.
56:4 For thus saith the LORD to the eunuchs that keep my
 sabbaths, and choose [the things] that please me, and take hold
 of my covenant;
56:5 Even to them will I give in my 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.
56:6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the
 LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his
 servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it,
 and taketh hold of my covenant;
56:7 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 my altar; for my house
 shall be called a house of prayer for all people.
56:8 The Lord GOD who gathereth the outcasts of Israel, Yet will
 I gather [others] to him, besides those that are gathered to
56:9 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yes, all ye
 beasts in the forest.
56:10 His watchmen [are] blind: they are all ignorant, they
 [are] all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down,
 loving to slumber.
56:11 Yes, [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
56:12 Come ye, [say they], I will bring wine, and we will fill
 ourselves with strong drink; and to-morrow shall be as this
 day, [and] much more abundant.
