Hallel for Rosh Chodesh Adar: Paragraph Five
I suspect that the Jews who heard of Haman’s decree did not celebrate God’s kindness, or perceive His truth, and yet, there were indications of both even in the darkest hours: Esther was Queen, and Mordechai saved the King’s life. The Servant of God singing the Hallel does not sing only after Haman is defeated; he perceives and sings of God’s kindness and truth even during the time of travail:
“All you nations; Praise God!
Sing compliments, all you peoples!
For His kindness overpowers us,
and God’s Truth is forever.
