20th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A: 1st Reading

Isaiah 56:1, 6-7

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.
