Abstract

Isaiah preaches from exile to a people who have experienced multiple imperial onslaughts and thus, his usage of feminine imagery seeks to comfort the pain of the Israelites while also fostering a unique Israelite nationalism. In seeking to bring about a “New Israel,” with a secure covenant, Isaiah promises the people a victorious future of fertility and prosperity within the land of Israel.
