First Reading for the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Isaiah 55:1-3

Summary: The LORD invites everyone to come and receive food and drink without cost, promising life and renewal of the everlasting covenant.

Come and Receive

Thus says the LORD:
All you who are thirsty, come to the water! You who have no money, come, receive grain and eat; Come, without paying and without cost, drink wine and milk!

Why spend your money for what is not bread; your wages for what fails to satisfy?

Heed me, and you shall eat well, you shall delight in rich fare. Come to me heedfully, listen, that you may have life. I will renew with you the everlasting covenant, the benefits assured to David.
