Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the text and translation of strophe IV: 18:5. The theme of the verse is the destruction of parts of the vineyard. The rhetoric of entrapment that started in v. 1 has by v. 5 reached its clarification. This solution is seen the following ways: First, the clarification can only be grasped if what is said in v. 5 hangs together. Both from the textual design (reappearance of number and status) and the motifs (all of v. 5 is taken from the sphere of viticulture), the chapter shows that cohesion is created. Second, both textual design and motifs of v. 5 show that the focus in this verse is on YHWH and what he does in the vineyard. This concentration on YHWH and what he does functions to put the theme of the destruction of parts of the vineyard in the centre.
