Because of their great theological significance, the prophecies of Isaiah have undergone much scrutiny and interpretation. Such was its importance that in the late nineteenth century, biblical scholar Thomas Kelly Cheyne sought to offer a new translation of this prophetic book. Based on extensive semantic study, T. K. Cheyne delivers comprehensive notes for elucidation and clarification of the text. Following the translation, Cheyne offers critical commentary on the arrangement of the text, the reception of Isaiah within Israel, and the consistency of the prophecies. “Here the author ventures to close his confessions relative to his personal views on theological subjects,” and his objective “is rather to clarify the facts than prematurely to manifest the deductions.” Cheyne provides linguistic facts first, and only then gives his well-reasoned comments.
