To define the role of the author of Third Isaiah as a reader of the book, this chapter analyzes allusion and influence in Isaiah 56:1–8, finding the following examples: ‘righteousness,’ ‘salvation,’ and ‘justice’ from First and Second Isaiah are combined in 56:1; the ‘eternal name’ from Isaiah 55 is taken up in Isaiah 56; the ‘servant’ theme of Isaiah 40–55 was the basis for the ‘servants’ theme of 56:1–8 and 65–66; the ‘dispersed of Israel’ from Isaiah 11 influenced, and was redefined by, 56:1–8. Above all else, it is seen that the author of this passage wished to redefine who would partake of the promises made in earlier Isaianic oracles, which had retained their validity.

Keywords:   Isaiah 56:1–8, allusion, influence, reader, righteousness, justice, Isaiah 56:1, Isaiah 55, servant, Isaiah 11
