This initial group of oracles (Isa 14:28–20:6) was later supplemented with a separate collection of five shorter ַמ ָשּׂאoracles. Four of these are contained within Isa 21–22, while the fifth has since been displaced to its current position at 30:6–7. 49 Duhm’s early proposal is attractive for advocating the growth of Isa 13–23 by increments that are not strictly defined by the ַמ ָשּׂאsuperscription, but his view of these chapters as an independent booklet is less plausible. Although he offers no basis besides thematic coherence within the units, his position is clearly distinguished from subsequent views that involve the incorporation of a self-contained collection of ַמ ָשּׂאoracles.
10 Despite a solid basis for the distinction of a sense for ַמ ָשּׂאaside from ‘burden’, the derivation from נשׂא קוֹלis difficult to sustain, since in no case in the Hebrew Bible is a prophetic figure ever said to lift up his or her voice to speak a ַמ ָשּׂא. -P. Müller, “ ַמ ָשּׂא,” TDOT 9:20–24; also Johannis D. Michaelis, Observationes philologicae et criticae in Jeremiae Vaticinia et Threnos (ed. Johannes Friedericus Schleusner; Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 1793), 199–201; Karl Heinrich Graf, Der Prophet Jeremia (Leipzig: Weigel, 1862), 315; Karl Marti, Das Buch Jesaja (KHC 10; Tübingen: Mohr [Siebeck], 1900), 117; Ronald E.
As a result, his application of the formal elements to other oracles is occasionally forced. For example, it is not at all clear how Isa 14:31 (“Wail, O gate; cry, O city; melt, O Philistia, all of you! For from the north smoke comes, and there is no straggler in its ranks”) is supposed to function as both a flight passage and a lamentation text. 31 In sum, Geyer seeks to identify a formal structure for the composition of the ON-IJE in the hopes of tracing the origins of a specific type of literature, but the challenges to his analysis suggest that the identification of a common literary structure for these oracles remains elusive.
