Example text

47 According to Duhm, this booklet initially consisted of a small collection of five oracles that are now found in 14:28–20:6, 46 The occurrences at Nah 1:1; Hab 1:1; Zech 9:1; 12:1; Mal 1:1 all introduce larger textual units. 47 Duhm, Jesaia, 12–13. See also Sigmund Mowinckel, “Die Komposition des Jesajabuches Kap. 1–39,” AcOr 11 (1932): 276–8; Joachim Becker, Isaias: Der Prophet und sein Buch (SBS 30; Stuttgart: Katholisches Bibelwerk, 1968), 63–6. 48 Despite the appearance of both ‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬and non-‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬material in this group, Duhm detects thematic homogeneity among them, and asserts that concern for the land of Philistia in the first and last units (14:28– 32; 20:1–6) provides an appropriate enclosure for the collection.

Macintosh, Isaiah XXI: A Palimpsest (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1980). e. that these chapters were first deliberately formulated into a collection of foreign nations oracles, when the ‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬superscriptions were supposedly applied. Vermeylen claims that this period was marked by a diminished interest in particular nationalities, so the reworking tends to compare non-Jews with other nations by means of general descriptions, as demonstrated in such additions as 18:3, 5–6; 19:5–10.

In addition, some oracles appear to address the fall of Babylon, presumably at the end of the exilic period (13:1–14:23; 21:1–10), while others 1 Michael H. Floyd, “The ‫( ַמ ָשּׂא‬maśśāʾ) as a Type of Prophetic Book,” JBL 121 (2002): 401–22. e. , 17:1–6; 22:1–8). As the previous chapter noted, this has caused difficulty for tracing the development of such an independent collection and for dating its subsequent incorporation into the book of Isaiah. Finally, even the ‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬superscriptions themselves in Isa 13–23 are diverse, as will be discussed in greater detail shortly.
