Isaiah 66:1-2 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

The Worship God Demands

66 Thus says the Lord:
“Heaven is my throne
    and the earth is my footstool;
what is the house which you would build for me,
    and what is the place of my rest?
All these things my hand has made,
    and so all these things are mine,[a]
                says the Lord.
But this is the man to whom I will look,
    he that is humble and contrite in spirit,
    and trembles at my word.

Isaiah 66:18-23 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

18 “For I know[a] their works and their thoughts, and I am[b] coming to gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and shall see my glory, 19 and I will set a sign among them. And from them I will send survivors to the nations, to Tarshish, Put,[c] and Lud, who draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the coastlands afar off, that have not heard my fame or seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations. 20 And they shall bring all your brethren from all the nations as an offering to the Lord, upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon dromedaries, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the Lord, just as the Israelites bring their cereal offering in a clean vessel to the house of the Lord. 21 And some of them also I will take for priests and for Levites, says the Lord.

22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth
    which I will make
shall remain before me, says the Lord;
    so shall your descendants and your name remain.
23 From new moon to new moon,
    and from sabbath to sabbath,
all flesh shall come to worship before me,
says the Lord.
