Isaiah 55:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 55

An Invitation to Grace

All you who are thirsty,[a]
    come to the water!
You who have no money,
    come, buy grain and eat;
Come, buy grain without money,
    wine and milk without cost!
Why spend your money for what is not bread;
    your wages for what does not satisfy?
Only listen to me, and you shall eat well,
    you shall delight in rich fare.
Pay attention and come to me;
    listen, that you may have life.
I will make with you an everlasting covenant,
    the steadfast loyalty promised to David.

  1. 55:1–3 The prophet invites all to return, under the figure of a banquet; cf. the covenant banquet in Ex 24:9–11 and wisdom’s banquet in Prv 9:1–6. The Lord’s covenant with David (2 Sm 7) is now to be extended beyond his dynasty.

Amos 8:11-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 See, days are coming—oracle of the Lord God
    when I will send a famine upon the land:
Not a hunger for bread, or a thirst for water,
    but for hearing the word of the Lord.
12 They shall stagger from sea to sea
    and wander from north to east
In search of the word of the Lord,
    but they shall not find it.

13 On that day, beautiful young women and young men
    shall faint from thirst,
