The word in Isa 14,4 is commonly held by text-critics to result from a scribal mistake. The discussion seeks to illuminate the meaning of the original reading (attested by 1QIsaa) within the literary context of the dirge on the king of Babylon (Isa 14,3-21) against the background of the Akkadian Epic of Anzu.
