Come to the LORD

and you without silver,

come, buy, and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk

without silver and without cost!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 55:2 -

“Why do you spend silver on what is not food,

and your wages on what does not satisfy?

Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good,

and you will enjoy the choicest of foods.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 55:3 -

on the basis of the faithful kindnesses of David.[fn]

has glorified you.”

and your ways are not my ways.”

and do not return there

without saturating the earth

and making it germinate and sprout,

and providing seed to sow

and food to eat,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 55:11 -

“so my word that comes from my mouth

will not return to me empty,

but it will accomplish what I please

and will prosper in what I send it to do.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 55:12 -

You will indeed go out with joy

and be peacefully guided;

the mountains and the hills will break into singing before you,

and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 55:13 -

Instead of the thornbush, a cypress will come up,

and instead of the brier, a myrtle will come up;

this will stand as a monument for the LORD,

an everlasting sign that will not be destroyed.
