Chapter Summary

The composition of Isaiah 28-39 is studied from three points of view: (1) The historical background of the prophecies contained in these chapters; (2)The redactional 'bridges' between the two main parts of the Book of Isaiah: chapter 33 and 35; (3) The function of chapters 36-39 in the redaction of the book as a whole. The first woe (Isaiah 28) opens a new subdivision of the first part of the Book of Isaiah but its closure is located differently and might be a shifting end. The Second and Third Woe (Isaiah 29:1-14, 15-24) cries can be treated together since the theme of wisdom bridges the end of the former and the beginning of the latter. At first sight, the fourth woe (Isaiah 30) cry does not naturally ensue from the ApcIsa. The fifth woe (Isaiah 31) cry is not as strongly related to the ApcIsa as the preceding woe cries.

Keywords: Isaiah 28; Isaiah 29:1-14, 15-24; Isaiah 30; Isaiah 31
