Chapter Summary

Of primary importance for the question of the identity of the Servant in the so-called "Servant Songs" of Isaiah xl - lv are naturally those passages in which the equation Servant = Israelis explicit. Apart from the difficulties presented by the one explicit reference to the Servant as Israel, the whole question of the identity of the Servant depends chiefly upon the extent to which and the manner in which the "Songs" are seen to be related to their present context. In recent work on Deutero-Isaiah there is a notable tendency to stress the importance of studying the "Songs" in their context this, of course, is to be expected in any tradition-history study of these texts and an increasing demand to see the "Songs" as an integral part of Is. xl-lv.
