Abstract The striking similarity of the Cyrus cylinder with the contemporaneous Cyrus oracle in Is 45:1-7 has often been noticed, but up to now, we lack a detailed comparison that concentrates on the conceptions of God. Due to their crucial importance for the understanding of both texts, such a focus, however, promises to be rewarding: It allows to elaborate aspects substantial for both documents and to illuminate their similarities and differences more sharply. For Old Testament research, a particularly relevant result is that the monotheism of Deutero-Isaiah can be located more precisely in the religious- and theological-historical developments of the late Babylonian and early Persian time.
