  1. Deuteronomy 23:1 Lit wounded by crushing of testicles

Let not the (A)foreigner who has joined himself to the Lord say,
“The Lord will surely separate me from His people.”
Nor let the (B)eunuch say, “Behold, I am a dry tree.”

For thus says the Lord,

“To the eunuchs who (C)keep My sabbaths,
And choose what pleases Me,
And (D)hold fast My covenant,
To them I will give in My (E)house and within My (F)walls a memorial,
And a name better than that of sons and daughters;
I will give [a]them an everlasting (G)name which (H)will not be cut off.
