7 let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to YHVH, that HE may have compassion on him, and to our God, for HE will abundantly pardon.
8 For MY thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways MY ways, declares YHVH.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are MY ways higher than your ways and MY thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 so shall MY WORD be that goes out from MY mouth; it shall not return to ME empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
12 “For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for YHVH, an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
Isaiah 56:1 Thus says YHVH :”Keep justice, and do righteousness, for soon MY Salvation
2 Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath, not profaning it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.”
3 Let not the foreigner who has joined himself to YHVH say, ” YHVH will surely separate me from HIS people”; and let not the eunuch say, “Behold, I am a dry tree.”
4 For thus says YHVH : “To the eunuchs who keep MY Sabbaths, who choose the things that please ME and hold fast MY covenant,
5 I will give in MY house and within MY walls a monument and a name better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off.
6 “And the foreigners who join themselves to YHVH, to minister to HIM, to love the name of YHVH, and to be HIS servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it, and holds fast MY covenant-
7 these 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 shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
8 Adonai YHVH, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, declares, “I will gather yet others to him besides those already gathered.”
