Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the most important conclusions of the research in summary fashion. It explains the Zion text of 28:16 as a promise of salvation for support to an exegetical tradition that stretches back more than twenty centuries and, in principle, as far back as the Septuagint’s translation of the particular biblical text. The chapter discusses Zion text of 28:16 in history of interpretation and in its Literary and Historical Context. The Zion text of 28:16 is part of a prophecy of judgement (28:14–22), which is closely associated at the redactional level with the preceding prophecy of judgement (28:7–13). Based only on the prominent place ascribed to the theme 'Zion' in the book of Isaiah, the author suspects that Zion likewise enjoyed a prominent role in the Jerusalemite prophet's original preaching. Zion serves as the point of conjunction between Isaiah’s preaching of judgement and his preaching of salvation.
