Bible: Isa 55:1-5

The Lord Gives an Invitation

55:1Hey, 1  all who are thirsty, come to the water!

You who have no money, come!

Buy and eat!

Come! Buy wine and milk

without money and without cost! 2 

55:2 Why pay money for something that will not nourish you? 3 

Why spend 4  your hard-earned money 5  on something that will not satisfy?

Listen carefully 6  to me and eat what is nourishing! 7 

Enjoy fine food! 8 

55:3 Pay attention and come to me!

Listen, so you can live! 9 

Then I will make an unconditional covenantal promise to 10  you,

just like the reliable covenantal promises I made to David. 11 

55:4 Look, I made him a witness to nations, 12 

a ruler and commander of nations.”

55:5 Look, you will summon nations 13  you did not previously know;

nations 14  that did not previously know you will run to you,

because of the Lord your God,

the Holy One of Israel, 15 

for he bestows honor on you.
