56 This is what Jehovah says:
“Uphold justice,+ and do what is righteous,
For my salvation will soon come
And my righteousness will be revealed.+
2 Happy is the man who does this
And the son of man who holds fast to it,
Who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it+
And who holds his hand back from any kind of evil.
3 The foreigner who joins himself to Jehovah+ should not say,
‘Jehovah will surely separate me from his people.’
And the eunuch should not say, ‘Look! I am a dried-up tree.’”
4 For this is what Jehovah says to the eunuchs who keep my sabbaths and who choose what I delight in and who hold fast to my covenant:
5 “I will give to them in my house and within my walls a monument and a name,
Something better than sons and daughters.
An everlasting name I will give them,
One that will not perish.
6 As for the foreigners who join themselves to Jehovah to minister to him,
To love the name of Jehovah+
And to be his servants,
All those who keep the Sabbath and do not profane it
And who hold fast to my covenant,
7 I will also bring them to my holy mountain+
And make them rejoice inside my house of prayer.
Their whole burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar.
For my house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.”+
8 The Sovereign Lord Jehovah, who is gathering the dispersed ones of Israel,+ declares:
“I will gather to him others besides those already gathered.”+
10 His watchmen are blind,+ none of them have taken note.+
All of them are speechless dogs, unable to bark.+
They are panting and lying down; they love to slumber.
They are shepherds who have no understanding.+
They have all gone their own way;
Every last one of them seeks his own dishonest gain and says:
And tomorrow will be like today, only far better!”
