aKeep ye ||judgment, and do justice:
For bmy salvation is near to come,
And my righteousness to be revealed.
2 Blessed is cthe man that doeth this,
And cthe son of man that layeth hold on it;
dThat keepeth the sabbath from polluting it,
And keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
3 Neither let ethe son of the stranger, fthat hath joined himself to the Lord, speak, saying,
The Lord hath utterly separated me from his people:
Neither let gthe eunuch say, Behold, I am ha dry tree.
4 For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs dthat keep my sabbaths,
And choose the things that please me,
And take hold of my covenant;
5 Even unto them will I give in imine house and within my walls
kA place and la name better than of sons and of daughters:
I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
6 Also ethe sons of the stranger, fthat join themselves to the Lord,
To serve him, and to love the name of the Lord,
To be his servants,
Every one dthat keepeth the sabbath from polluting it,
And taketh hold of my covenant;
7 mEven them will I bring to my holy mountain,
And make them joyful in my house of prayer:
nTheir burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be oaccepted upon mine altar;
For pmine house shall be called an house of prayer qfor all people.
8 The Lord God which gathereth rthe outcasts of Israel saith,
Yet swill I gather others to him, †beside those that are gathered unto him.
9 tAll ye beasts of the field, come to devour,
Yea, all ye beasts in the forest.
10 His uwatchmen are vblind: they are all ignorant,
They are all dumb wdogs, they cannot bark;
||Sleeping, lying down, loving xto slumber.
11 Yea, they are †greedy dogs which †zcan never have enough,
And they are zashepherds that cannot understand:
They all look to their own way,
bEvery one for his gain, from his cquarter.
12 dCome ye, esay they, I will fetch wine,
And we will fill ourselves with strong drink;
And fto morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.
