The book of the prophet Isaiah, chapter 56, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 56


   1 Haec dicit Dominus: "Custodite iudicium et facite iustitiam, quia iuxta est salus mea, ut veniat, et iustitia mea, ut reveletur".
   2 Beatus vir, qui facit hoc, et filius hominis, qui apprehendit istud, custodiens sabbatum, ne polluat illud, custodiens manum suam, ne faciat omne malum.
   3 Et non dicat filius advenae, qui adhaeret Domino, dicens: "Separatione dividet me Dominus a populo suo". Et non dicat eunuchus: "Ecce, ego lignum aridum".
   4 Quia haec dicit Dominus eunuchis: "Qui custodierint sabbata mea et elegerint, quae ego volui, et tenuerint foedus meum,
   5 dabo eis in domo mea et in muris meis locum et nomen melius a filiis et filiabus: nomen sempiternum dabo eis, quod non peribit.
   6 Et filios advenae, qui adhaerent Domino, ut colant eum, ut diligant nomen Domini, ut sint ei in servos, omnes custodientes sabbatum, ne polluant illud, et tenentes foedus meum,
   7 adducam eos in montem sanctum meum et laetificabo eos in domo orationis meae: holocausta eorum et victimae eorum placebunt mihi super altari meo, quia domus mea domus orationis vocabitur cunctis populis".
   8 Ait Dominus Deus, qui congregat dispersos Israel: "Adhuc congregabo ad eum praeter congregatos eius".
   9 Omnes bestiae agri, venite ad devorandum, universae bestiae saltus.
   10 Speculatores eius caeci, omnes nescierunt; universi sunt canes muti non valentes latrare, insanientes, cubantes, amantes soporem;
   11 et canes voraces nescierunt saturitatem, ipsi pastores ignoraverunt intellegentiam: omnes in viam suam declinaverunt, unusquisque ad avaritiam suam, a summo usque ad novissimum.
   12 "Venite, sumam vinum, et impleamur ebrietate; et cras erit sicut hodie et multo amplius".

King James Version

   1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
   2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
   3 ¶ Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.
   4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
   5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
   6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
   7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
   8 The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
   9 ¶ All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.
   10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
   11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
   12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.
