(p.234) 14 Isaiah
King Josiah of Judah

Study of the book of Isaiah has tended to focus on the reconstruction of the “authentic” words of the eighth‐century prophet and the exile or postexilic redaction of his book. Nevertheless, considerable evidence has been mounting of a Josianic or Assyrian redaction of the book of Isaiah that was designed to support Josiah's reform in the aftermath of the collapse of Assyrian power. Redaction‐critical analysis of key texts in Isaiah 5–12; 14–23; 27; 28–32; and 36–37 points to evidence for the Josianic redaction of the Isaian tradition.

Keywords:   Assyrian redaction, Isaiah, Isaiah 14–23, Isaiah 27, Isaiah 28–32, Isaiah 36–37, Isaiah 5–12, Josianic redaction
