This study examines why many oracles in Isaiah 13-23 that begin with words of doom against respective nations end with future visions of their restoration. It is believed that the oracles against the foreign nations from the tradition of the eighth-century prophet Isaiah of ancient Judah underwent numerous supplements in the process of transmission through centuries of changing circumstances of the Judean community. Jongkyung Lee argues that a particular group of passages in Isaiah 13-23 can be identified as belonging to the period shortly before the Neo-Babylonian Empire was conquered by the Achaemenid Empire in the sixth-century BCE.
