comment Historical Context and Fulfillment of Isaiah 7:8
Not a scholarly answer: Jeremiah 28:8-9 implies that only prophecies of redemption are necessarily fulfilled and prophecies of destruction may or may not be fulfilled.

comment Judges 3:9 and the meaning of זעק
I don't think the word has a connotation of repentance and we don't have any compelling models of repentance in the whole book. Instead, the relationship between God and people is very strained in the book of Judges and when the people try to repair that relationship they seem to get it wrong, eg: 11:32-40.

Psalm 107 has some instructive uses as well.

comment Creation of Man narrated twice with different God name
Biblical authorship is a different question from whether or not we're dealing with two distinct narratives. Rashi, a medieval Jewish commentator and "pious reader" of the Bible, who definitely believed in divine authorship, recognizes two different creation narratives here. See Rashi's last comment on this verse. Umberto Cassuto, Robert Alter and other modern Bible scholars who are not "pious readers" don't accept the DH, and still see two distinct narratives here.
