1 So says the LORD, Keep judgment and do justice; for My salvation [is] near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed.
2 Blessed [is] the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; keeping the sabbath, from defiling it; and keeping his hand from doing any evil.
3 And do not let the son of the stranger, who has joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, the LORD has utterly separated me from His people. And do not let the eunuch say, Behold, I [am] a dry tree.
4 For so says the LORD to the eunuchs who keep My sabbath, and choose things that please Me, and take hold of My covenant;
5 even to them will I give within My house and within My walls a hand 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, who join themselves to the LORD to serve Him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be His servants, everyone who keeps from defiling the sabbath, and takes hold of My covenant;
7 even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices [shall be] accepted on My altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples,
8 says the Lord Jehovah who gathers the outcasts of Israel, Yet I will gather beside him his gathered ones.
9 All beasts of the field, come to devour, all beasts in the forest.
10 His watchmen [are] blind; they are all ignorant; they [are] all dumb dogs who cannot bark, dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber.
11 Yea, [they are] greedy dogs which can never have enough; and they [are] shepherds [who] cannot understand. They all look to their own way, every one for his gain, to his own end.
12 [They say], come, Let us take wine, and let us gulp strong drink; and tomorrow shall be like today, and much more abundant.
