Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the Zion text of 28:16 and exegesis of pericope 28:7–13 and pericope 28:14–12. It 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, with exegesis of 28:7–13. The chapter compares the results of studies, by way of evaluation, in order to determine the degree of cohesion evident between the pericopes as well as the apparent differences. In like fashion to the prophecy of 28:14–22, Isa. 28:7–13 also belongs to the prophecy of judgement genre and clearly exhibits the usual pattern of accusation and announcement of judgement. The chapter establishes a picture of the similarities and points of connection between the two pericopes as well as the differences. It finally focuses on the outermost pericopes of Isaiah 28, namely 28:1–4(6) and 28:23–29 respectively.
