[b-hebrew] Isaiah 53 read within the book as a whole

Doesn't work. 55:1: col, "he" is everyone, every Jew, not a particular
person. Then col is transformed into the nation in 55:5. Still not clear,
though.
Also a problem of him in vs.4 and you in vs.5. Might refer to the same
person, but unlikely.
Then vs6-7 again of all the people.
I would call vs 5 an insert.

Best regards,

Vadim
