Isaiah 45:

14

15
 SU GAR EI QEOS KAI OUK HiDEIMEN hO QEOS TOU ISRAHL SWTHR


Both, Hippolytus and Noetus (in "Against Noetus") regarded the pronoun "SU"
of the verse 15 in reference to the same  person in which "hO QEOS ESTIN"
before. Thus, both understood it as "For God is in thee[...]because you are
God" (hOTI EN SOI hO QEOS[...]SU GAR EI QEOS).
 I wonder if the grammar let this reading or may be the lack of "." and ","
in the manuscripts at that time produced confussion to the readers.
