All Nations Will Be Part of God's People

56 The Lord said:
    Be honest and fair!
Soon I will come to save you;
my saving power will be seen
    everywhere on earth.

I will bless everyone
who respects the Sabbath
    and refuses to do wrong.

Foreigners who worship me
    must not say,
“The Lord won't let us
    be part of his people.”
Men who are unable
    to become fathers
must no longer say,
    “We are dried-up trees.”

(A) To them, I, the Lord, say:
    Respect the Sabbath,
    obey me completely,
    and keep our agreement.
Then you will be like monuments
in my temple with your names
    written on them.
This will be much better
    than having children,
because these monuments
    will stand there forever.

Foreigners will follow me.
They will love me and worship
    in my name;
they will respect the Sabbath
    and keep our agreement.
(A) I will bring them
    to my holy mountain,
where they will celebrate
    in my house of worship.
Their sacrifices and offerings
will always be welcome
    on my altar.
Then my house will be known
as a house of worship
    for all nations.
