Although the attention paid by Andrew and other Victorines to the historical and literal in scriptural interpretation opened an important door for Christian biblical scholarship, understanding of what was meant by the “literal sense of Scripture” was a profoundly difficult question that could be answered in several different ways—and in fact was. For Thomas Aquinas (ca. 1225–1274), who wrote expositions on Isaiah (most fully on chs. 87 Yet for him the literal sense, being what the divine author of Scripture intended, could and did embrace figurative and metaphorical use of language and even Old Testament typological witness to Christ and the church.
Isaiah 10:20–22 foresees that “in that day” Israel will no longer lean upon her smiter. Instead, a remnant will return to Mighty God. However, 10:22 underlines the loss to the nation that such a whittling down inescapably entails. A concessive clause affirms that not even the patriarchal promise can ward off the divine fiat that only a rump shall survive the impending catastrophe: For though your people, O Israel, be like the sand of the sea, (only) a remnant of it shall return.

Today Lowth is primarily known among biblical scholars for recognizing “parallelism of members” as a prevailing characteristic of Hebrew poetry. What has been forgotten until recently is that in elucidating numerous examples of parallelism not only from the Psalms but from the classical prophets (primarily Isaiah), Lowth overturned the idea that had prevailed for over a millenium among both Jews and Christians, that poetry and prophecy were mutually exclusive genres. Lowth’s presentation of the prophet as poet, and his later translation of Isaiah as prophetic poetry, not only revolutionized the visual presentation of Isaiah and other prophetic books in subsequent biblical translations (and even in the BHK and BHS ) but also ignited interest in “poets as prophets” among British romantic poets and deeply influenced German interpretation of Isaiah, beginning with Koppe and Gesenius and extending to Duhm and Gunkel.
