Isaiah 56

7 I will bring these 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 will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.

8 The Lord Yahweh, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says,

I will yet gather others to him,

in addition to his own who are gathered.


Isaiah 57

5 you who inflame yourselves among the oaks,

under every green tree;

who kill the children in the valleys,

under the clefts of the rocks?

6 Among the smooth stones of the valley is your portion;

they, they are your lot.

You have even poured a drink offering to them.

You have offered an offering.

Shall I be appeased for these things?

On a high and lofty mountain you have set your bed.

You also went up there to offer sacrifice.

You have set up your memorial behind the doors and the posts;

for you have exposed yourself to someone besides me,

and have gone up;

you have enlarged your bed,

and made you a covenant with them.

You loved what you saw on their bed.
