1 “Ho! Every one that thirsteth, come you to the waters, and he that hath no money; come you, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do you spend money for that which is not bread? And your labour for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto Me, and eat you that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
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 Dawid.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 Behold, you shalt call a nation that you knowest not, and nations that knew not you shall run unto you because of יהוה your God (Elohim), and for the Holy One of Yisrael; for He hath glorified you.”
6 Seek you יהוה while He may be found, call you upon Him while He is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto יהוה, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God (Elohim), for He will abundantly pardon.
8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” saith יהוה.
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 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it brings forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater,
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.
12 For you 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 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 יהוה for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
