Title: Jahwe oder der Perserkönig?
Subtitle: Intertextuelle und semantische Studien zu Jes 40,10
Author(s): GASS, Erasmus
Volume: 92 Issue: 4 Date: 2011
Due to the chosen vocabulary and to intertextual connections, Isa 40,9-11 hint covertly at the Persian king who is responsible for the political turmoil that also affected the Babylonian Gola. The Persian king is characterized as a triumphant warrior (v. 10) and a caring shepherd (v. 11). Since Cyros administers the duties of a shepherd in Isa 44:28, he might be the one who acts on behalf of Yahweh here.
