Isaiah 55:1-5 World English Bible (WEB)

55 “Come, everyone who thirsts, to the waters!
    Come, he who has no money, buy, and eat!
    Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
Why do you spend money for that which is not bread,
    and your labor for that which doesn’t satisfy?
Listen diligently to me, and eat that which is good,
    and let your soul delight itself in richness.
Turn your ear, and come to me.
    Hear, and your soul will live:
    and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Behold, I have given him for a witness to the peoples,
    a leader and commander to the peoples.
Behold, you shall call a nation that you don’t know;
    and a nation that didn’t know you shall run to you,
    because of Yahweh your God,
    and for the Holy One of Israel;
    for he has glorified you.”

The Free Offer of Mercy

55 “Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters;
And you who have no [a]money come, buy and eat.
Come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without cost.
“Why do you [b]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.
Incline your ear and come to Me.
Listen, that [c]you may live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
According to the faithful mercies [d]shown to David.
“Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
A leader and commander for the peoples.
“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.”
