Come

“Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without cost. (Isaiah 55:1 )

  • everyone. The Servant’s redemptive work and glorious kingdom are for the benefit of all who are willing to come. The prophet invites his readers to participate in the benefits obtained by the suffering of the Servant in chapter 53 and described in chapter 54.
  • no money . . . without money . . . without price. Benefits in the Servant’s kingdom will be free because of his redemptive work.
  • wine and milk. Symbols for abundance, satisfaction, and prosperity (John MacArthur)

We are all invited to come and take the benefit of that provision which the grace of God has made for poor souls in the new covenant, of that which is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and not only their heritage hereafter, but their cup now. ( Matthew Henry)
