Abstract This essay argues for a contextual exegetical reading of the servant songs in Second Isaiah. By reading the songs in the literary context of references to the "second exodus" and hymns of celebration, several conclusions can be drawn. There are three servant figures in the four servant songs: one servant (Israel) in need of redemption, one servant (Second Isaiah) who proclaims redemption, and one servant (the Messiah) who procures redemption. This servant of the fourth song is not the prophet himself or Israel but a servant figure whose sacrifice will break the yoke of Babylon.
