Title: A Brief Discussion of MT Isaiah 24,14-16
Author(s): CUNHA, Wilson de Angelo
Volume: 90 Issue: 4 Date: 2009
Recent scholarship interprets Isaiah 24,14-16 in light of a 'prophetic disputation pattern' genre, which sees the praise in vv. 14-15 as an assertion and the 'I' statement in v. 16b as the counter-assertion, thus, correcting the assertion in vv. 14-15. This article seeks to challenge this interpretation and argue that the 'I' statement in v. 16b does not need to function as a 'counter-assertion' to the praise in vv. 14-15 but, rather, as introducing the proclamation of judgment for the unrighteous (v. 16c).
