Dear Vadim,
I don't feel teased at all.
I am grateful, actually, for this chance to find
out if there are any inconsistencies in my theory,
and where they are and what. I am not the first 
(nor will I be the last) to suggest that Cyrus
is the Servant. My problem is that there are over
100 years of *modern* scholarship on the Servant,
most in German, and I haven't tackled it enough to
write a paper on it.

As far as Isaiah 63 goes I haven't looked at the 
texts after 56, except for 61, assuming that it was
by a different author.
So, I have no idea. Most commentators assign 60-62 to
So, I don't know.
Thanks for asking tho.
What's your opinion?
