I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “eunuch”.

2 Kings 9:32 And he lifted up his face to the window,
and said, Who is on my side? who?
And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs.

which thou shalt beget, shall they take away;
and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.

which thou shalt beget, shall they take away;
and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.

The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people:

and all the captains of the forces that were with him,
all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, from Mizpah,

and the women,
and the children,
and the eunuchs, whom he had brought again from Gibeon:

Jeremiah 52:25 He took also out of the city an eunuch,
which had the charge of the men of war;
and seven men of them that were near the king’s person, which were found in the city;
and the principal scribe of the host, who mustered the people of the land;
and threescore men of the people of the land,
that were found in the midst of the city.

Daniel 1:3 And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs,
that he should bring certain of the children of Israel,
and of the king’s seed,
and of the princes;

Daniel 1:7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names:
for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar;
and to Hananiah, of Shadrach;
and to Mishael, of Meshach;
and to Azariah, of Abednego.

Daniel 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that
he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat,
nor with the wine which he drank:
therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs
that he might not defile himself.

Daniel 1:9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour
and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.

Daniel 1:10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel,
I fear my lord the king,
who hath appointed your meat and your drink:
for why should he see your faces worse liking
than the children which are of your sort?
then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.

whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

which were so born from their mother’s womb:

for the kingdom of heaven’s sake.
He that is able to receive it,
let him receive it.

and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this?
of himself, or of some other man?

Acts 8:36 And as they went on their way,
they came unto a certain water:
and the eunuch said, See, here is water;
what doth hinder me to be baptized?

Acts 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still:
and they went down both into the water,
both Philip and the eunuch;
and he baptized him.

Acts 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water,
the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip,
that the eunuch saw him no more:
and he went on his way rejoicing.
