Isaiah 55

I do not think I could possibly add anything more to this chapter than what it says. I have read and memorized bits and pieces of this but never have I realized it in its entirety. Truly, why have I never noticed this chapter before? What moving, uplifting words! I am truly inspired….

~Isaiah 55~


(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) 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.

(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) Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people,

a leader and commander to the people.

(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.

(6) Seek ye the Lord while he may be found,

call ye upon him while he is near:

(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.

(8) For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

(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 bring 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 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) 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.

  1. Dear Kegan,
    Thank you so much for your sharing. I read this chapter both in KJV and in Japanese now. When I read the verse, “Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people”(v 4), it reminded of you.

    God has appointed you as a witness to the people. And He is preparing and shaping you every day for His divine purpose. This blog itself will be a wonderful record for you and for many other people.

    He is with you and He is rejoicing over you! Kinuko
