Isaiah 56 - UPDV Updated Bible Version

Isaiah, Chapter 56

56:1 Thus says Yahweh, Keep+ justice, and do righteousness; for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
56:2 Blessed is [the] common man who does this, and the son of man who holds it fast; who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.
56:3 Neither let the foreigner, who has joined himself to Yahweh, speak, saying, Yahweh will surely separate me from his people; neither let the eunuch say, Look, I am a dry tree.
56:4 For thus says Yahweh of the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, and choose that which pleases me, and hold fast my covenant:
56:5 To him I will give in my house and inside my walls a memorial and a name better than of sons and of daughters; I will give them an everlasting name, that will not be cut off.
56:6 Also the foreigners who join themselves to Yahweh, to minister to him, and to love the name of Yahweh, to be his slaves, everyone who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and holds fast my covenant;
56:7 even them I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
56:8 The Sovereign Yahweh, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, Yet I will gather [others] to him, besides his own who are gathered.
56:9 All you+ beasts of the field, come to devour, [yes,] all you+ beasts in the forest.
56:10 His watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they can't bark; dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber.
56:11 Yes, the dogs are greedy of soul, they can never have enough; and these are shepherds who cannot understand: they have all turned to their own way, each one to his gain, from every quarter.
56:12 Come+, [they say], I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow will be as this day, [a day] great beyond measure.
