Isaiah 56 (WEBP)

[1] Yahweh says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is near and my righteousness will soon be revealed.
[2] Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who holds it fast; who keeps the Sabbath without profaning it and keeps his hand from doing any evil.”
[3] Let no foreigner who has joined himself to Yahweh speak, saying, “Yahweh will surely separate me from his people.” Do not let the eunuch say, “Behold, I am a dry tree.”
[4] For Yahweh says, “To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, choose the things that please me, and hold fast to my covenant,
[5] I will give them in my house and within 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.
[6] Also the foreigners who join themselves to Yahweh to serve him, and to love Yahweh’s name, to be his servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and holds fast my covenant,
[7] I will bring these 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.”
[8] The Lord Yahweh, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, “I will yet gather others to him, in addition to his own who are gathered.”
[9] All you animals of the field, come to devour, all you animals in the forest.
[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.
[11] Yes, the dogs are greedy. They can never have enough. They are shepherds who can’t understand. They have all turned to their own way, each one to his gain, from every quarter.
[12] “Come,” they say, “I will get wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow will be as today, great beyond measure.”

Isaiah 56 (KJVS)

[1] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, Keep H8104 (8798) ye judgment H4941, and do H6213 (8798) justice H6666: for my salvation H3444 [is] near H7138 to come H935 (8800), and my righteousness H6666 to be revealed H1540 (8736).
[2] Blessed H835 [is] the man H582 [that] doeth H6213 (8799) this, and the son H1121 of man H120 [that] layeth hold H2388 (8686) on it; that keepeth H8104 (8802) the sabbath H7676 from polluting H2490 (8763) it, and keepeth H8104 (8802) his hand H3027 from doing H6213 (8800) any evil H7451.
[3] Neither let the son H1121 of the stranger H5236, that hath joined H3867 (8738) himself to the LORD H3068, speak H559 (8799), saying H559 (8800), The LORD H3068 hath utterly H914 (8687) separated H914 (8686) me from his people H5971: neither let the eunuch H5631 say H559 (8799), Behold, I [am] a dry H3002 tree H6086.
[4] For thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 unto the eunuchs H5631 that keep H8104 (8799) my sabbaths H7676, and choose H977 (8804) [the things] that please H2654 (8804) me, and take hold H2388 (8688) of my covenant H1285;
[5] Even unto them will I give H5414 (8804) in mine house H1004 and within my walls H2346 a place H3027 and a name H8034 better H2896 than of sons H1121 and of daughters H1323: I will give H5414 (8799) them an everlasting H5769 name H8034, that shall not be cut off H3772 (8735).
[6] Also the sons H1121 of the stranger H5236, that join H3867 (8737) themselves to the LORD H3068, to serve H8334 (8763) him, and to love H157 (8800) the name H8034 of the LORD H3068, to be his servants H5650, every one that keepeth H8104 (8802) the sabbath H7676 from polluting H2490 (8763) it, and taketh hold H2388 (8688) of my covenant H1285;
[7] Even them will I bring H935 (8689) to my holy H6944 mountain H2022, and make them joyful H8055 (8765) in my house H1004 of prayer H8605: their burnt offerings H5930 and their sacrifices H2077 [shall be] accepted H7522 upon mine altar H4196; for mine house H1004 shall be called H7121 (8735) an house H1004 of prayer H8605 for all people H5971.
[8] The Lord H136 GOD H3069 which gathereth H6908 (8764) the outcasts H1760 (8737) of Israel H3478 saith H5002 (8803), Yet will I gather H6908 (8762) [others] to him, beside those that are gathered H6908 (8737) unto him.
[9] All ye beasts H2416 of the field H7704, come H857 (8798) to devour H398 (8800), [yea], all ye beasts H2416 in the forest H3293.
[10] His watchmen H6822 (8802) [are] blind H5787: they are all ignorant H3045 (8804), they [are] all dumb H483 dogs H3611, they cannot H3201 (8799) bark H5024 (8800); sleeping H1957 (8802), lying down H7901 (8802), loving H157 (8802) to slumber H5123 (8800).
[11] Yea, [they are] greedy H5794 H5315 dogs H3611 [which] can H3045 (8804) never have H3045 (8804) enough H7654, and they [are] shepherds H7462 (8802) [that] cannot understand H995 (8687): they all look H6437 (8804) to their own way H1870, every one H376 for his gain H1215, from his quarter H7097.
[12] Come H857 (8798) ye, [say they], I will fetch H3947 (8799) wine H3196, and we will fill H5433 (8799) ourselves with strong drink H7941; and to morrow H4279 shall be as this day H3117, [and] much H3966 more H3499 abundant H1419.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 56 (YLT)

[1] Thus said Jehovah: ‘Keep ye judgment, and do righteousness, For near is My salvation to come, And My righteousness to be revealed.’
[2] O the happiness of a man who doth this, And of a son of man who keepeth hold on it, Keeping the sabbath from polluting it, And keeping his hand from doing any evil.
[3] Nor speak let a son of the stranger, Who is joined unto Jehovah, saying: ‘Jehovah doth certainly separate me from His people.’ Nor say let the eunuch, ‘Lo, I am a tree dried up,’
[4] For thus said Jehovah of the eunuchs, Who do keep My sabbaths, And have fixed on that which I desired, And are keeping hold on My covenant:
[5] I have given to them in My house, And within My walls a station and a name, Better than sons and than daughters, A name age-during I give to him That is not cut off.
[6] And sons of the stranger, who are joined to Jehovah, To serve Him, and to love the name of Jehovah, To be to Him for servants, Every keeper of the sabbath from polluting it, And those keeping hold on My covenant.
[7] I have brought them unto My holy mountain, And caused them to rejoice in My house of prayer, Their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices Are for a pleasing thing on Mine altar, For My house, ‘A house of prayer,’ Is called for all the peoples.
[8] An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, Who is gathering the outcasts of Israel: ‘Again I gather to him-to his gathered ones.’
[9] Every beast of the field, Come to devour, every beast in the forest.
[10] Blind are his watchmen-all of them, They have not known, All of them are dumb dogs, they are not able to bark, Dozing, lying down, loving to slumber.
[11] And the dogs are strong of desire, They have not known sufficiency, And they are shepherds! They have not known understanding, All of them to their own way they did turn, Each to his dishonest gain from his quarter:
[12] ‘Come ye, I take wine, And we drink, quaff strong drink, And as this day hath been to-morrow, Great-exceeding abundant!’
