Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Isa. 28:14–22. It determines the place of the pericope within the redactional unit of Isaiah 28–33. The chapter discusses that Isaiah 28 enjoys a unique character and a unique function within Isaiah 28-33 based on the considerations and observations, which relate to the internal structure and content of Isaiah 28 as well as the place of this chapter within the framework established by the six woe statements around which Isaiah 28-33 is constructed, thus justifying its typification as an overture. The six woe statements serve as the skeleton of the segment of the book. The author concludes that the prophecy of judgement of 28:14–22 serves as a guide for the reader of Isaiah 28–33 based on the considerations, more so than the closely related prophecy of judgement of 28:7–13, and in particular because of the Zion text of 28:16.43.

Keywords: Isaiah; judgement prophecy; overture; pericope; redactional unit; six woe statements
