a memorial and a name
better than sons and daughters.

that will never be cut off.

minister to Him, love the name of Yahweh
and become His servants,

and let them rejoice in My house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and sacrifices
will be acceptable on My altar,
for My house will be called a house of prayer
for all nations.”
