Chapter Summary

Redaction-critical approaches to Isaiah 65-66 have been predominantly fissive in their treatment of this chapter, often splitting them up into various layers of material. However, a number of recent studies have begun to show an increasing awareness of the unifying factors that are present within the chapter. Thus, Hanson, anticipating later studies, regards ch. 65 as an integrated whole on the basis of repeated terminology, and divides ch. 66 into vv. 116 and 17-24. He regards chs 65-66 as an original whole, which was written as a carefully constructed, step-by-step, response to the lament in 63:7-64:11. Whilst giving a critical acceptance to the standpoint of the lament, the response systematically corrects and enlarges upon it. Although Steck is convinced that chs 65-66 contain a response to the preceding lament, commentators in general have been divided over the issue.
