The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 56

1

Thus saith1 the LORD, Keep3 ye judgment, and do3 justice: for my salvation [is] near to come,2 and my righteousness to be revealed.9

2

Blessed [is] the man [that] doeth4 this, and the son of man [that] layeth hold55 on it; that keepeth6 the sabbath from polluting15 it, and keepeth6 his hand from doing2 any evil.

3

Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined8 himself to the LORD, speak,4 saying,2 The LORD hath utterly53 separated55 me from his people: neither let the eunuch say,4 Behold, I [am] a dry tree.

4

For thus saith1 the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep4 my sabbaths, and choose1 [the things] that please1 me, and take hold56 of my covenant;

5

Even unto them will I give1 in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give4 them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.11

6

Also the sons of the stranger, that join12 themselves to the LORD, to serve15 him, and to love2 the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth6 the sabbath from polluting15 it, and taketh hold56 of my covenant;

7

Even them will I bring52 to my holy mountain, and make them joyful14 in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices [shall be] accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called11 an house of prayer for all people.

8

The Lord GOD which gathereth18 the outcasts12 of Israel saith,7 Yet will I gather17 [others] to him, beside those that are gathered12 unto him.

9

All ye beasts of the field, come3 to devour,2 [yea], all ye beasts in the forest.

10

His watchmen6 [are] blind: they are all ignorant, 3045 1 they [are] all dumb dogs, they cannot 3201 4 bark;2 sleeping,6 lying down,6 loving6 to slumber.2

11

Yea, [they are] greedy 5315 dogs [which] can never have1 enough, and they [are] shepherds6 [that] cannot 3045 1 understand:53 they all look1 to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

12

Come3 ye, [say they], I will fetch4 wine, and we will fill4 ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, [and] much more abundant.
