Revelation 22:17 (Without Price)

The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price. Revelation 22:17

22:17 In v. 20, "Come" is a prayer addressed to Jesus, who promises to come soon. Here it is an invitation to the spiritually thirsty, to take the water of life without price, for it is freely provided by God's grace (21:6; Isa. 55:1).

Revelation 21:6 (Without Payment)

And he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. Revelation 21:6

21:6 It is done! The destruction of God's enemies (16:17) and the salvation of his saints are both completed. The Alpha and the Omega. First and last letters of the Greek alphabet (cf. 1:8; 22:13). The Lord stands beyond the universe's beginning and its end as Sovereign Creator and Consummator, the first and the last (Isa. 41:4; 44:6; 48:12). The spring of the water of life is the throne of God and the Lamb (Rev. 22:1), a throne of grace (Heb. 4:16) because here the thirsty drink without payment, by God's free gift (Isa. 55:1).
