Claremont Graduate School, 1986), 353–7. Victor Sasson (“An Unrecognized ‘Smoke Signal’ in Isaiah xxx 27,” VT 33 [1983]: 90–95) relates the unusual form ‫ַמ ָשּׂ ָאה‬ in MT Isa 30:27 to ‫ ַמ ְשׂ ֵאת‬as well. 11 However, 2 Kgs 9:25 speaks of lifting up (‫ )נשׂא‬a ‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬, with clear reference to a prophetic utterance rather than any kind of physical burden or load.

These difficulties demonstrate a need for a re-evaluation of common assumptions about the formation of Isa 13–23. Therefore, Chapter 2, below, advances a new proposal for the broad stages in the development of this broad collection, which serves as a basis for the formation of the Cush-Egypt group in Isa 18–20 as well.
