Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the issue of which parts of First Isaiah can be dated to the Assyrian period, i.e. the eighth-seventh century. It begins with an analysis of Isa 6-8 and Isa 28-32, because these two complexes play a key role with regard to the question of the extent to which one may find early prophetic words within First Isaiah. The chapter then demonstrates that the reworking of Isa 6-8 does not stand in isolation, but can be compared to various other texts within First Isaiah that announce the destruction of Judah and Jerusalem. It concludes with a presentation of the Isaiah tradition in the Assyrian period, which in my view originated as a series of prophetic words that were preserved in the form of small collections, and that, in the seventh-century were revised in the form of three textual compilations.
