Chapter Summary

The Isaiah tradition in the Assyrian period consisted of two main stages. The first consists of the prophetic material relating to the circumstances of the eighth century BCE, the second is a literary revision of this prophetic material. This chapter aims to open a window on these two stages of the Isaiah tradition in the Assyrian period by focussing on Isa 10:24-27. It argues that Isa 10:24-27 consists of material that is best interpreted against the background of the Assyrian period. Properly understood, the passage opens a window on the Isaiah tradition in the Assyrian period. Isa 10:24-27 is part of a larger textual unit dealing with Assyria's imperialism. The unit of 10:5-34 contains three prophecies, 10:5-15*, 10:24-25, and 10:27b-32, each of which is followed by a commentary: 10:16-19, 10:26a.27a, and 10:33-44. Directly connected with the final comment, 10:33-34, is a description of a new ideal king in 11:1-5.

Keywords: Assyrian period; Isaiah 10:24-27; Isaiah 10:5-11:5
