This article argues that Isa xlvi 1-2 represents a prophecy given on the occasion of the Babylonian New Year's festival. It is based on the condition and “behaviour” of the Babylonian cult statues carried in procession. This prophecy is not only directly dependent upon a group of Babylonian omens, called “processional omens”, but also follows the Babylonian custom of divining portents from the condition and movement of the statue of Marduk at the New Year's festival.
