Isaiah 55:1-3a


Prune Soleiado:
“Come, all you who are thirsty,
    come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
    come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without cost.
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
    and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
    and you will delight in the richest of fare.
3 Give ear and come to me;
    listen, that you may live. »

Nice verses, Prune.

I read this chapter today, having opened my Bible to the precise page (thanks to a "randomly" placed bookmark). I read this famous passage:

For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:8-9

What I noticed for the first time was the previous verse, which gives the reason for this declaration. Ray often commented on the "connectiveness" of the word For, how it indicates the "because" of what precedes it. Here is verse 7, which tells how His thoughts are higher than man's thoughts:

Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the LORD,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
