Isaiah 55:3–4—Why Is He Talking about David?
The “David” here actually refers to Jesus Christ, who was a legal heir to the throne of David. Interestingly, the name David in Hebrew means “beloved.” Usually, when the later Old Testament prophets refer to David, they are talking about the throne of David and are speaking about the Messiah.
