Chapter Summary

Some passages of the Syriac version of Isaiah have the particularity that they have been transmitted in two different contexts: as part of the Book of Isaiah and as part of the Odes. This chapter discusses two elements of Schneider's reconstruction. First, that the selection of Odes and the practice of treating them as an appendix to the Book of Psalms arose in the Greek tradition and from there entered the Syriac tradition; and second, that there were several series of Odes, before the Nine Odes list became the standard. The chapter investigates the situation with regard to Isa 26:9-19. It compares the Hebrew Masoretic Text, the Greek text of the Septuagint of Isaiah, the Greek text of the Odes, the Syriac text of Isaiah and the Syriac text of the Odes, and discusses some observations.

Keywords: Book of Isaiah; Greek text; Hebrew Masoretic text; Syriac Odes
