Let no foreigner who is bound to the Lord say, “The Lord will surely exclude me from his people” … the foreigners who bind themselves to the Lord… these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer.  Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.  Isaiah 56:3-7
