Similarities between II Isaiah and Deuteronomy xxxii are commonly noted, however, little work has been done regarding the nature of that relationship. This article argues that there is a direct and conscious literary, theological and thematic dependence between these texts. Theologically, both passages proclaim the incomparability of Yahweh in the context of judgment-deliverance intervention with respect to Israel with the basis for the switch from judgment to deliverance the same in both texts. Thematic similarities are evident in a common presentation of the Lord, and with similar motifs such as remembrance, creation, witness, etc. Direct literary dependence is evident in the utilization of uncommon words and expressions, some of which occur in similar contexts.
