Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 55:1


55:1 Thirsteth - For the grace of God and the blessings of the gospel. This thirst implies a vehement, and active, and restless desire after it. No money - Those who are most worthless and wicked, if they do but thirst may be welcome. Buy - Procure or receive that which is freely offered. Wine and milk - All gospel - blessings; in particular, that peace and joy in the Holy Ghost, which are better than wine, and that love of God which nourishes the soul, as milk does the body.


Discussion for Isaiah 55:1

  • I tend to think that there is a mystery here. That the world will someday be as he intended,free from cost to eat and drink. but your rendition is the gifts and food that God gives. Which makes the burden in my life much less. Alissa
