"For thus says the Lord, To the eunuchs* who keep my my sabbaths, who choose the things that please me and hold fast my covenant, I will give in my house and within my walls a monument and a name better than sons and daughters, I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off." Isaiah 56:4.5 (NRSV)
This refers to the practice of God adopting unmarried men to His service.
Everyone was to them like children.
Because God is Father of all.
And His servants foster everyone.
(*Eunuchs referred to any men who did not marry.)
