The Book of Isaiah (Hebrew: ספר ישעיה‎) is the first of the three books of the Latter Prophets in the Hebrew Bible, and one of the major prophets in the Christian Old Testament. The book has 66 chapters: the first 39 chapters prophesy doom for a sinful Judah and for all the nations of the world that oppose God, while the last 27 prophesy the restoration of the nation of Israel and a new creation in God's glorious future kingdom;[1] this section includes the Songs of the Suffering Servant, four separate passages originally referring to the nation of Israel, but interpreted by Christians as prefiguring the coming of Jesus Christ.[2]

Tradition ascribes the book to Isaiah himself, but for over a hundred years scholars have divided it into three parts: Proto-Isaiah (chapters 1-39), containing the words of the 8th century BCE prophet and 7th century BCE expansions; Deutero-Isaiah (chapters 40-55), a 6th century BCE work by an author who wrote under the Babylonian captivity; and Trito-Isaiah (chapters 56-66), composed probably by multiple authors in Jerusalem shortly after the exile.[1][3][4][5]:pp.558-562
