The book of the prophet Isaiah, chapter 55, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 55


   1 Heu! Omnes sitientes, venite ad aquas; et, qui non habetis argentum, properate, emite et comedite, venite, emite absque argento et absque ulla commutatione vinum et lac.
   2 Quare appenditis argentum non in panibus et laborem vestrum non in saturitate? Audite, audientes me, et comedite bonum, ut delectetur in crassitudine anima vestra.
   3 Inclinate aurem vestram et venite ad me; audite, ut vivat anima vestra, et feriam vobiscum pactum sempiternum, misericordias David fideles.
   4 Ecce testem populis dedi eum, ducem ac praeceptorem gentibus.
   5 Ecce gentem, quam nesciebas, vocabis, et gentes, quae te non cognoverunt, ad te current, propter Dominum Deum tuum et Sanctum Israel, quia glorificavit te.
   6 Quaerite Dominum, dum inveniri potest; invocate eum, dum prope est.
   7 Derelinquat impius viam suam, et vir iniquus cogitationes suas; et revertatur ad Dominum, et miserebitur eius, et ad Deum nostrum, quoniam multus est ad ignoscendum.
   8 Non enim cogitationes meae cogitationes vestrae, neque viae vestrae viae meae, dicit Dominus.
   9 Quia sicut exaltantur caeli a terra, sic exaltatae sunt viae meae a viis vestris, et cogitationes meae a cogitationibus vestris.
   10 Et quomodo descendit imber et nix de caelo et illuc ultra non revertitur, sed inebriat terram et infundit eam et germinare eam facit et dat semen serenti et panem comedenti,
   11 sic erit verbum meum, quod egredietur de ore meo: non revertetur ad me vacuum, sed faciet, quaecumque volui, et prosperabitur in his, ad quae misi illud.
   12 Quia in laetitia egrediemini et in pace deducemini; montes et colles cantabunt coram vobis laudem, et omnia ligna regionis plaudent manu.
   13 Pro vepribus ascendet cupressus, et pro urtica crescet myrtus; et erit Domino in gloriam, in signum aeternum, quod non auferetur.

King James Version

   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.
