1 Nephi 5-8

5:4 uses a turn of phrase that stuck in my mind -- the "goodness of God", which Lehi knows because he is a "visionary man" and has "seen the things of God in a vision".  piques interest because the same phrase appears in 1:1, where it is connected with and may be synonymous with the "mysteries of God".  quick search shows that the same phrase shows up twice in Benjamin's speech, another Temple passage -- I'll note it and come back to it another time.

in 8:33 it strikes me that Nephi (Lehi?) describes the corrupt temple, as well as the roads by which people are lost, as "strange".  does he mean "odd", or "foreign"?
