Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the exegesis of 28:14–22, followed by an excursus on the so-called ‘covenant with death’ referred to in 28:15 and 18, and the exegesis of 28:7–13. Once the exegesis of both 28:14–22 and 28:7–13 is complete, the author compares the results of both studies to determine the degree of cohesion evident between the pericopes as well as the apparent differences. The chapter focuses on the outermost pericopes of Isaiah 28, namely 28:1–4 (6) and 28:23–29 respectively. The pericope formed by verses 1–6 of Isaiah 28 consists of a prophecy of judgement (28:1–4) and a promise of salvation (28:5–6), both of which are linked at the thematic level. Commentators are inclined to typify 28:23–29 as a ‘prophetic discussion’. The concluding pericope of Isaiah 28, however, no longer presents itself as prophecy of judgement but can be understood rather as a teaching or instruction based on the opening formula.

Keywords: Isaiah 28; promise of salvation; prophecy of judgement; prophetic discussion
