Isaiah 54:11-55:5New American Standard Bible (NASB)
11 “O afflicted one, storm-tossed, andnot comforted, Behold, I will set your stones in antimony, And your foundations I will lay in [a]sapphires. 12 “Moreover, I will make your battlements of [b]rubies, And your gates of [c]crystal, And your entire [d]wall of precious stones. 13 “All your sons will be [e]taught of the Lord; And the well-being of your sons will be great. 14 “In righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you. 15 “If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. 16 “Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals And brings out a weapon for its work; And I have created the destroyer to ruin. 17 “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that [f]accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.
The Free Offer of Mercy
55 “Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no [g]money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without cost. 2 “Why do you [h]spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And delight yourself in abundance. 3 “Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that [i]you may live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, According to the faithful mercies [j]shown to David. 4 “Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples, A leader and commander for the peoples. 5 “Behold, you will call a nation you do not know, And a nation which knows you not will run to you, Because of the Lord your God, even the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.”
