Isaiah 56
New Living Translation
56This is what the Lord says. “Be just and fair to all. Do what is right and good, for I am coming soon to rescue you and to display my righteousness among you.H559H3068H8104H4941H6213H6666H3444H7138H935H6666H1540 2Blessed are all those who are careful to do this. Blessed are those who honor my Sabbath days of rest and keep themselves from doing wrong.H835H582H6213H1121H120H2388H8104H7676H2490H8104H3027H6213H7451 3“Don’t let foreigners who commit themselves to the Lord say, ‘The Lord will never let me be part of his people.’ And don’t let the eunuchs say, ‘I’m a dried-up tree with no children and no future.’H1121H5236H3867H3068H559H559H3068H914H914H5971H5631H559H3002H6086 4For this is what the Lord says. I will bless those eunuchs who keep my Sabbath days holy and who choose to do what pleases me and commit their lives to me.H559H3068H5631H8104H7676H977H2654H2388H1285 5I will give them—within the walls of my house—a memorial and a name far greater than sons and daughters could give. For the name I give them is an everlasting one. It will never disappear!H5414H1004H2346H3027H8034H2896H1121H1323H5414H5769H8034H3772 6“I will also bless the foreigners who commit themselves to the Lord, who serve him and love his name, who worship him and do not desecrate the Sabbath day of rest, and who hold fast to my covenant.H1121H5236H3867H3068H8334H157H8034H3068H5650H8104H7676H2490H2388H1285 7I will bring them to my holy mountain of Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in my house of prayer. I will accept their burnt offerings and sacrifices, because my Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations.H935H6944H2022H8055H1004H8605H5930H2077H7522H4196H1004H7121H1004H8605H5971 8For the Sovereign Lord, who brings back the outcasts of Israel, says. I will bring others, too, besides my people Israel.”H136H3069H6908H1760H3478H5002H6908H6908 9Come, wild animals of the field! Come, wild animals of the forest! Come and devour my people!H2416H7704H857H398H2416H3293 10For the leaders of my people—the Lord’s watchmen, his shepherds—are blind and ignorant. They are like silent watchdogs that give no warning when danger comes. They love to lie around, sleeping and dreaming.H6822H5787H3045H483H3611H3201H5024H1957H7901H157H5123 11Like greedy dogs, they are never satisfied. They are ignorant shepherds, all following their own path and intent on personal gain.H5794H5315H3611H3045H3045H7654H7462H995H6437H1870H376H1215H7097 12“Come,” they say, “let’s get some wine and have a party. Let’s all get drunk. Then tomorrow we’ll do it again and have an even bigger party!”H857H3947H3196H5433H7941H4279H3117H3966H3499H1419
