With a view to our own exegesis of the text, it offers a brief overview of the various interpretations of the Zion text of Isa. 28:16 provided by modern biblical research. The Septuagint translation of the book of Isaiah introduced its own exegesis of the text in the process of translation. Writings of the community of Qumran have become our most significant source of information concerning Judaism in the final centuries before the Common Era.

The chapter provides findings with respect to the explanation of the Zion text of Isa. 28:16 in the early church. Glossa Ordinaria function as a standard work of exegesis in the Middle Ages.
