Article title

The Dynamism of Salvation according to Isa 12:1-6


Title variants

Languages of publication



The song of praise in Isa 12 is a confession of faith in Yahweh. Trust arises from the recognition of the activity of God in the history of Israel. In the historical events Israel can still re-experience the might of God, especially in the exodus, through which God makes his name known to the world. The name of Yahweh is inextricably connected with Israel, which is confirmed by the title the 'Holy One of Israel'. The title underlines the vital self-offering of God, who is dwelling among His people in Zion. In this context, the 'springs of salvation' are the metaphor of the salvific action of God, who through his words calls the people to abandon fear and to lean exclusively on the strength of his person. The trust in the word of Yahweh permits Israel to 'draw from the springs of salvation'.
