Chapter Summary

In light of the difficulties with the notion of an independent collection, however, a different approach must be taken toward the formation of Isa 13-23. The word appears ten times as an introductory element in Isa 13-23, and a similar occurrence can also be found at Isa 30:6. Although Weis has offered a comprehensive survey of the texts, his central methodological focus is on the texts in their final form, whereas the chapter is primarily concerned with the diachronic development of Isa 13-23. Marvin Sweeney depends substantially on Weis's definition of a genre for his own analysis of Isa 13-23. With regard to the formation of Isa 13-23, various attempts to establish a genre have been less than satisfactory. The chapter proposes only four oracles constituted the earliest collection of nations oracles.
