Isaiah, but I don't say-a much.

Did I miss a day somewhere?

Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

I may miss a day here, too. I don’t have anything. I mean, yes, relieving the oppressed is definitely a good thing; I’m for that. I just don’t have any way to tie that in to any of the stuff I have been on about for a week.

Actually, a minor note does occur to me: I started by talking about how, on Yom Kippur, we ask for mercy, not because in proportion to our merit, but in proportion to the Divine nature. And when we are told to relieve the oppressed, we aren’t told to first ascertain which among the oppressed deserve relief.

…and that’s all I got, today.
