Bible: Isaiah 56:3-5

56:3 No foreigner who becomes a follower of 1  the Lord should say,

The Lord will certainly 2  exclude me from his people.’

The eunuch should not say,

Look, I am like a dried-up tree.’

56:4 For this is what the Lord says:

“For the eunuchs who observe my Sabbaths

and choose what pleases me

and are faithful to 3  my covenant,

56:5 I will set up within my temple and my walls a monument 4 

that will be better than sons and daughters.

I will set up a permanent monument 5  for them that will remain.
