The prophet, with the promises of Christ, calleth to faith,
Isaiah 55:1 Ho! every one that thirsteth! Come ye to the waters, Yea he that hath no money,Come yebuy corn, and eat, Yea comebuy corn, without money, And, without price, wine and milk. Isaiah 55:2 Wherefore, should ye spend, Money, for that which is, not bread? Or your labour, for that which, satisfieth not? Keep on hearkening unto me, And so eat that which is good, And let your soul, take exquisite delight in fatness: Isaiah 55:3 Incline your ear, and come unto me, Hearken, That your soul, may live,That I may solemnise for you a covenant age-abiding, The Lovingkindness to David, well-assured. Isaiah 55:4 Lo! As a witness to the peoples, have I given him,As a leader and commander, to the peoples: Isaiah 55:5 Lo! A nation thou shalt not know, shalt thou call, And, a nation which hath not known thee, unto thee, shall run,For the sake of Yahweh thy God, And for the Holy One of Israel, because he hath adorned thee.
and to repentance.
Isaiah 55:6 Seek Yahweh, while he may be found,Call ye upon him, while he is near: Isaiah 55:7 Let the lawless forsake, his way, And the man of iniquity, his thoughts,And let him return unto Yahweh, That he may have compassion upon him, And unto our God, For he will abundantly pardon.
The happy success of them that believe.
Isaiah 55:8 For, my thoughts, are not, your thoughts, Nor, your ways, my ways,Declareth Yahweh. Isaiah 55:9 For, higher, are the heavens than the earth,So, higher, are, My ways, than, your ways, and, My thoughts, than, your thoughts. Isaiah 55:10 For, as the rain and the snow descend, from the heavens, And, thither, do not return, Except they have watered the earth, And caused it to bring forth and bud,And given, seed to the sower, and, bread to the eater, Isaiah 55:11 So, shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth, It shall not return unto me void,But shall accomplish that which I please, And shall prosper in that whereunto I have sent it. Isaiah 55:12 For, with gladness shall ye come forth, And, in peace, shall ye be led,The mountains and the hills, shall break out, before you, into shouts of triumph, And, all the wild trees, shall clap their hands: Isaiah 55:13 Instead of the thorn-bush, shall come up the fir-tree, And, instead of the nettle, shall come up the myrtle-tree,So shall it become, unto Yahweh, a Name, A Sign age-abiding, which shall not be cut off.
