This chapter explores the sexual and martial metaphorical language in Isaiah. Its presents Isaiah's sexual and marital metaphorical language in a way that reflects an understanding of the book as three discrete but interrelated parts, with chapters 40-55 emerging as a particularly distinctive voice. It is argued that Isaiah's metaphorical language is not only striking for its diversity, but also for its markedly positive character and the hope it brings to readers alert to its implications for the present time.
