Foolish Leaders and the Will of YHWH (Hardcase)

Product Description

“Gordon Wong’s new monograph on Isaiah 19 is marked by a thoroughness, irenic balance,
and remarkable clarity that one could only wish were the standard in the field. In his seven
chapters and one appendix, he discusses the translation and interpretation of the chapter,
the emergence and effects of its different units, the editorial echoes in its present literary
context and in its wider literary context. The whole discussion is marked by great erudition
and a thorough grasp of the scholarly literature.“

J.J.M. Roberts
W.H. Green Professor of Old Testament Literature (Emeritus)
Princeton Theological Seminary

Isaiah 19 is an unusual chapter that offers something for the textual critic, the translator, the historian and even the theologian. In this monograph, which provides a coherent literary reading of Isaiah 19, Professor Wong examines Isaiah 19 by discussing its redactional history or editorial emergence before reflecting on its effects. He begins by addressing issues of translation and interpretation, before reviewing the literary history of the chapter and summarizing his conclusions on the editorial echoes and effects present in the existing form of Isaiah 19. Finally, he presents his provisional views on Isaiah 19 in its wider literary context.
