First Reading for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Isaiah 56:1, 6-7

Summary: The LORD promises to welcome and bless all, including foreigners who uphold His covenants and Sabbath, in His temple—a house of prayer open to all.

A House for All

Thus says the LORD:
Observe what is right, do what is just; for my salvation is about to come, my justice, about to be revealed.

The foreigners who join themselves to the LORD, ministering to him, loving the name of the LORD, and becoming his servants— all who keep the sabbath free from profanation and hold to my covenant, them I will bring to my holy mountain and make joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be acceptable on my altar, for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
