  3. 3. Isaiah 56:3-73 Let no foreigner who is boundto the Lord say, “The Lord willsurely exclude me from hispeople.” And let no eunuchcomplain, “I am only a dry tree.”4 For this is what the Lord says:“To the eunuchs who keep mySabbaths, who choose whatpleases me
  4. 4. and hold fast to my covenant—5 to them I will give within mytemple and its walls a memorialand a name better than sonsand daughters;I will give them an everlastingname that will endure forever.6 And foreigners who bindthemselves to the Lord tominister to him, to love thename of the Lord, and to be hisservants,
