Abstract

1 The lamed in yL i is generally understood as a lamed of interest and is usually trans- lated “for,” but also “on my behalf ” ( NJB ), and “serve” ( NET ). However, it could also be a datival lamed , indicating the so-called indirect object of verbs of speaking. If this latter option is accepted it would indicate that the song witnessed to Yahweh as well as against Israel. This nuance is probably preferred considering the overall thrust of the song as a proclamation of the glory of the Lord. THE SONG OF MOSES A BASIS FOR ISAIAH’S PROPHECY by THOMAS A. KEISER Rowlett, USA Although similarities between II Isaiah and Deuteronomy xxxii are commonly noted, there has been little to no e ff ort to develop the nature of those similarities. For example, Knight asserts direct theo- logical dependence without any explanation or development (Knight, pp. 45, 55, 85, 95, 99, 119-20). McConville mentions the similarities of style and thought, again without development (McConville, p. 452). Similarly, Sanders notes: “The correspondence between Deut. 32:39 and certain passages in Deutero-Isaiah, for instance Isa. 43:11-13, is remarkable.
