Redaction in Isaiah 40–55

Redaction in Isaiah 40–55

(p.229) 6 Redaction in Isaiah 40–55
Isaiah After Exile

Jacob Stromberg

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Isaiah 40–55 for redaction by the author of Third Isaiah, detecting the following: There are several examples of editing in Isaiah 48, which from the point of view of the author of Third Isaiah are to reaffirm the salvation proclaimed in 40–55, while restricting it to the righteous alone; Isaiah 54 is also shaped editorially to restrict the promises made to Zion, limiting them to the ‘servants of the Lord,’ a designation given the righteous in 56:1–8 and 65–66. While the redactional intervention in chapters 40–55 is lighter than in chapters 1–39, each of these examples also exhibits a striking alignment between the hermeneutics of the redaction and the hermeneutics in Third Isaiah as it alludes to older Isaianic prophecy.

Keywords:   Isaiah 40–55, Isaiah 48, Isaiah 54, wicked, righteous, servants, Zion, salvation, seed, name
