The Use of Tôrâ by Isaiah
His Debate With the Wisdom Tradition
A careful, scholarly investigation into Isaiah's relationship to the wisdom circles of his day, and a critique of the practitioners of wisdom in their role as advisers in the royal court and as shapers of royal policy. Presents Isaiah's own view on YHWH's plan and action in history. His use of tôrâ is not priestly or legal or for the prophetic word, but means "wise instruction," as in the wisdom tradition. Careful exegesis of Isaiah's use of the passages in which tôrâ occurs (Isa 1:10; 2:3; 5:24; 8:16.20; 30:9).
