Chapter Summary

This chapter is distinguished from the Cush oracle by a title at 19:1, while a narrative about Cush and Egypt begins at 20:1. Thus, much of Isa 19 is the product of various accretions that are held together by common interest in Egypt. From a literary standpoint, many critical scholars deny Isaianic authorship of Isa 19:1-4 on two main grounds. First, this oracle is one of nine in Isa 13-23 that begin with a 'GN' superscription. Secondly, the authenticity of Isa 19:1-4 is often ruled out on the basis of a style that is thought to be a poor imitation of the genuine work of Isaiah ben Amoz. The relationship between Isa 19:5-10 and Ezek 30:1-19 seems to be especially informative. Isaiah 19:15 does not seem to be part of the same compositional unit as verses 11-14.

Keywords:Cush oracle; Isaiah 19
