Yahweh keeps them safe from locusts (Mal 3:11-3:11)

“‘I will rebuke

The locust

For you.

Thus,

It will not destroy

The produce

Of your soil.

Your vine

In the field

Shall not be barren.’

Says Yahweh of hosts.”

Yahweh, via Malachi, said that he was going to hold back the locusts from them.  These locusts would not destroy the products that they planted.  In fact, their vineyards would not be barren, but fruitful.

Invitation to the banquet (Isa 55:1-55:2)

“O!

Everyone who thirsts!

Come to the waters!

You that have no money!

Come!

Buy!

Eat!

Come!

Buy wine!

Buy milk!

But without money!

But without a price!

Why do you spend your money

For that which is not bread?

Why do you labor

For that which does not satisfy?

Listen carefully to me!

Eat what is good!

Delight yourselves in rich food!”

This seems to be a concluding hymn of joy. Second Isaiah has an invitation to those without money to come to drink and eat without any price on the products. They can have water, wine, and milk. They should save their money for bread. Why are they working at jobs that they do not like? Eat good food, even rich food. Enjoy yourself at this banquet!
