Go to Bible: Isaiah 55
 
Isa 55:1

“Hey!” The Hebrew term hoy (#01945,הוֹי), is an interjection that was used in different contexts and has to be translated in a way that fits with the context, and possible translations include “ah, alas, oh, woe, O, ho,” etc.). It was used in hard and difficult times such as deaths and funerals, and often is used in prophecies of judgment to catch the people’s attention. However, sometimes it was just used to get the reader to pay attention, and that seems to be the case here in Isaiah 55:1.

“all you who are thirsty.” This invitation is general and includes all humanity, not just Israel, as we see from the context, especially Isaiah 55:5.

Isa 55:2

“abundance.” The Hebrew is literally “fatness.” In ancient societies it was uncommon to have a great variety of food, and the food people had was often meager, so a meal with things like olive oil and meat with fat was a real treat.

Isa 55:3

“David.” “David” refers to the future Davidic king, the Messiah. We see the Messiah called “David” in Ezek. 34:23 and 37:24 (see commentary on Ezek. 34:23). The covenant promises made to the Messiah are reliable, like the promises made to David.

Isa 55:4

“given him.” “given him,” that is, given the future Davidic Messiah, who we know as Jesus Christ.

Isa 55:5

“a nation that you do not know.” The Messianic kingdom will cover the whole earth and the Messiah will rule the whole earth, and people of every different nationality will come to him and serve him.
