- I wish there'd never be another time like it, but that's a figure of speech and there always is.

- Never again: also a figure of speech.

- Breaking the yoke and tearing the ropes of slavery is good, though.

- Also, if there's no difference between Jewish people and Gentiles, then surely God doesn't want anyone to be enslaved.

- Soon meaning in a couple decades.

- Safety, peace, no enemy to frighten them. This is all wonderful, but in today's mood I am cynical and bitter. Ish.

- You said before you'd overpunish, now you'll punish fairly. Haven't you already punished?

- But You're with them and will save them.

- This is seriously very weird, victim-blaming, abusive rhetoric. I hurt you but it was your own fault. Why cry when it was your own fault.

- Oh, I see, cycle of redemptive violence, nice.

- Your wound cannot be healed, but I will heal it. Which I guess is lovely/God-as-all-powerful/indefinable and indefatigable inconsistency.

- Who would dare to come to me uninvited? is an odd thing to just drop in there. I like you now, but btw still fear me.

- You will be my people and I will be your God is like the catchphrase of the Old Testament. Besides punishment and destruction.

- But it is lovely that God's accepting them back. Because they did actually do shitty things. But then God enslaved them. So.

- One thing God is really great at, apparently: staying angry.
