Chapter Summary

This chapter includes a section called contextual analysis, where the relations between the first (vv. 1–2) and second stanza (vv. 3–6) of Isa 18 are attended to. Through observations about the textual design of Isa 18:6, the author has seen that the rhetoric of entrapment that started in v. 1 has been resolved by v. 5. The devastating judgement in v. 6 is pronounced in the following ways: First, cohesion between words and lines are created through the various forms of resemblance that occurs in this verse. Second, an atmosphere of devastating activity is created. Third, concentration on the coming judgement is created through the focus on non-human creatures and on their devouring of the tendrils and twigs. Fourth, the confusion that has held the audience awake through the whole speech is resolved by vv. 5–6.

Keywords: contextual analysis; devastating activity; non-human creatures; Strophe V: 18:6; syntactic patterns; textual design
