Despite such attempts, other characteristics of the textual material are not so easily divided along the same lines. e. as well as later periods. In addition, the grouping of Cush and Egypt material in Isa 18–20 witnesses to thematic ties that transcend attempts at division according to oracular titles. Furthermore, the scholarly divide concerning the priority of either ‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬or non-‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬texts suggests that this criterion cannot sustain arguments in either direction. In light of the foregoing comments, we should mention a few scholars whose proposals for the formation of Isa 13–23 are more or less indifferent to the distinction of the ‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬superscription.

This approach is a more plausible alternative to the usual assumption of the incorporation of a comprehensive collection of ‫ ַמ ָשּׂא‬oracles. e. or to later periods, while maintaining that the collection has developed within the literary context of the book of Isaiah.

Boda, “Freeing the Burden of Prophecy: Maśśāʾ and the Legitimacy of Prophecy in Zech 9–14,” Bib 87 (2006): 350. 32 chapter two to establish a definition of the genre. Moreover, many other prophetic speech forms have the same intention, even though some of the ‫ַמ ָשּׂא‬ texts themselves do not easily share this characteristic.
