Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author shows that the allusions to Lamentations in Isa 40-55 emphasize the Judahite perspective of the latter text. The chapter first discusses some general aspects relating to the matter of inner-biblical textual allusions and then looks at the specific notion of the allusions to Lamentations in Isa 40-55. It focuses in particular on the allusions in Isa 40:1; 49:14-26; 49:13; 51:11-12, 17-23; 52:1, 11. The chapter proposes a different scenario. Instead of one community replacing the other, the author suggests that the allusions to Lamentations in Isa 40-55 served the Judahite community as a means of strength and support. The chapter demonstrates that by assuming that Isa 40-55 is a Judahite text, it is understood the function of the allusions to Lamentations imbedded in the text in a better way.
