G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Isaiah 55

 

 

Verses 1-13

Immediately following the song we have the prophet's great appeal. It is made in the consciousness of the victory won by the Servant of the Lord and the consequent possibility of restoration offered to the people. Nevertheless it distinctly sets forth the solemn conditions on which advantage may be taken of the great provision.

It first recognizes the need of the people in the verses which describe their condition as thirsty, as being without money, as spending "money for that which is not bread," and earnestly urges them to turn and listen to Him who has been given as a "Witness to the peoples," as a "Leader and Commander."

In this second part the appeal is made with greater directness, and the terms on which the people may find their way back into relationship with God are distinctly stated.

The whole ends with a description, full of poetry and beauty, of the conditions of fruitfulness and joy and prosperity which must follow return to the Lord and submission to His government.
