Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the translator's Übersetzungsweise in a lengthy unit, Isaiah 28. Although there is not space to address each and every feature of the chapter 28 of Isaiah, this reading demonstrates how the translator went about forming it into a literary unit. On first glance, the chapter 28 might seem a loose collection of ad hoc renderings. However, a closer reading provides prima facie evidence that the translator produced a coherent unit. The author proposes to uncover the translator's synthetic understanding of the chapter 28 by exploring how he achieved his rendering. Before doing so, however, it is important to comprehend the literary structure of this passage in the LXX without reference to its Vorlage. The chapter opens with a woe pronounced against "the crown of insolence", defined as a metaphor for "the hirelings of Ephraim", further described as "the blossom which has fallen from its splendor".

Keywords: Isaiah 28; literary structure; LXX's Vorlage
