- Is this referring to the destruction of Jerusalem? And the goodness being Jesus?

- Goodness shining like the sun, healing in its rays. ('the sun of righteousness shall rise, with healing in its wings' in the NRSV.)

- I finally understand that 'leaping like a calf loosed from its stall' verse from Farther Along!

- The judgement sounds so much more joyous and just in the NRSV. Like freedom from oppression. I think it's the 'treading down'and 'under the soles of your feet', which evokes comparisons with oppressors doing those things and the reversal when judgement comes. Not that I think the oppressors have to be oppressed or tormented, but...idk.
