55 The Lord's Invitation
1 If you are thirsty,
55.1 Rev 21.6; 22.17.
come and drink water!
If you don't have any money,
come, eat what you want!
Drink wine and milk
without paying a cent.
55 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Why waste your money
55.2 Si 24.19
on what really isn't food?
Why work hard for something
that doesn't satisfy?
Listen carefully to me,
and you will enjoy
the very best foods.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
spend: Heb. weigh

3 Pay close attention!
55.3 Ac 13.34.
Come to me and live.
I will promise you
the eternal love and loyalty
that I promised David.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
4 I made him the leader and ruler
of the nations;
he was my witness to them.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 You will call out to nations
you have never known.
And they have never known you,
but they will come running
because I am the Lord,
the holy God of Israel,
and I have honored you.
5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
God's Words Are Powerful
6 Turn to the Lord!
He can still be found.
Call out to God! He is near.
6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7 Give up your crooked ways
and your evil thoughts.
Return to the Lord our God.
He will be merciful
and forgive your sins.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
the unrighteous...: Heb. the man of iniquity
abundantly...: Heb. multiply to pardon

8 The Lord says:
“My thoughts and my ways
are not like yours.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 Just as the heavens
are higher than the earth,
my thoughts and my ways
are higher than yours.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 “Rain and snow fall from the sky.
55.10 2Co 9.10.
But they don't return
without watering the earth
that produces seeds to plant
and grain to eat.
10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 That's how it is with my words.
They don't return to me
without doing everything
I send them to do.”
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
God's People Will Celebrate
12 When you are set free,
you will celebrate
and travel home in peace.
Mountains and hills will sing
as you pass by,
and trees will clap.
12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Cypress and myrtle trees
will grow in fields
once covered by thorns.
And then those trees will stand
as a lasting witness
to the glory of the Lord.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
