Chapter Summary

This chapter considers the possibilities for influence of one text on another in the transmission of the oracles concerning Moab, one may hope to find answers to several questions. First, are there signs of influence between the Isaiah and Jeremiah texts? Second, in which direction(s) does the influence flow - from Isaiah to Jeremiah, vice-versa, or in both directions? Third, is the influence between the Isaiah and Jeremiah texts part of a larger picture of mutual influence among all the Moab oracles/texts, simply because they refer to Moab, or is it particular to the Isaiah and Jeremiah speeches? Fourth, does the influence appear in particular witnesses, and if so, which ones? The chapter draws the conclusions the evidence suggests in relation to questions, and consider what this says broadly about the phenomenon of assimilation in the transmission of the biblical text, the reception of the text, and modern understandings of these phenomena.

Keywords: Isaiah; Jeremiah; Moab oracles/texts; textual transmission
