Ho there! Yo there! Would those two exclamations be functionally the same? The first phrase of Isaiah 55:1 in the KJV goes :"Ho,every one that thirsteth,come ye to the waters..." The Bishop's Bible of 1568 does not have "Ho". Neither does Coverdale (1535) and the Wycliffe Bible of 1395.I guess its one of those pesky little additions that the KJV team came up with.(Just kidding.) The NET Bible : Hey,all who are thirsty,come to the water! The Message : Hey there! All who are thirsty,come to the water! Ho,yo,hey!
