Title: The 'I'-Figure's Relations in the Poem in Isa 38,10-20
Author(s): VAN WIERINGEN, Archibald L.H.M.
Volume: 96 Issue: 4 Date: 2015
This article offers a close reading of the Writing of Hezekiah (Isa 38,10-20) and describes the development of both the relation between the 'I'-figure and the Lord and that between the 'I'-figure and the community. An 'ellipsis' between vv. 14 and 15 plays a prominent role. Furthermore, the article demonstrates that the developments in the 'I'-figure's relations in the poem fit well within the poem's context (chapters 36-39). The ellipsis in the poem is connected to the open ending of chapter 38, to the happy conclusion of chapters 36-37, and to the open ending of chapter 39.
