Abstract

The 'Lament over the River Nile' in Isaiah xix 5-10 has attracted little interest from scholars yet demonstrates some interesting features in terms of poetic form and structure as well as its relationship to the larger unit of Isaiah xix 1-15. Comparison with ancient Egyptian prophecy suggests that this larger section is a unity and draws heavily on the author's awareness of Egyptian geography and culture. In the lament itself, the author uses various forms of parallelism in order to emphasise the effect of the drought, and in so doing to highlight the superiority of YHWH over the gods of Egypt.
