Today, we will continue our reading of the Reverend Rabbi Keisar’s book “In Front of the Blind,” an excerpt from chapter “The Purpose of Animals.” “The Whale says: ‘Give thanks to Hashem (God) for He is good, His kindness endures forever.’ The Fish say: ‘The voice of Hashem is upon the waters, The God of glory thunders; Hashem is upon a multitude of waters.’” “The Sheep and Goats say: ‘Who is like You among the mighty ones, Hashem, who is like You, adorned in holiness, awesome in praise, worker of wonders!’” “The Cattle say: ‘Rejoice unto God, our strength, applaud the God of Jacob!’ The Swine say: ‘Hashem is good to the upright and the straight of heart.’” “The Camel says: ‘Hashem roars from upon high and sounds His voice from His holy Abode, and roars His agony about His Temple.’” “The Horse says: ‘Behold, as the eyes of the servants to their master’s hand, as the eyes of a maid to her mistress’s hand, so are our eyes to Hashem our God until He will favor us.’” “The Donkey says: ‘To You, Hashem, is the greatness and the might and the triumph and the glory for everything in Heaven and Earth is Yours; To You, Hashem, is the monarchy and the sovereignty over every leader.’” “In the book of Kings 2 it tells how the army of Sennacherib surrounded Jerusalem in the days of King Hezekiah. 180,000 of Sennacherib’s soldiers died when they came to fight against the nation of Israel and that which caused their death was the song of animals. As it is said, Rabbi Yitzchak Nafcha says: ‘He revealed ears for them and they hear the songs from the mouths of the creatures and they died.’” “Radak: ‘This refers to Isaiah’s prophecy ‘And a wolf shall live with a lamb,’ and that is discussed there.’” “‘And a wolf shall live with a lamb, and a leopard shall lie with a kid; and a calf and a lion cub and a fatling [shall lie] together, and a small child shall lead them. And a cow and a bear shall graze together, their children shall lie; and a lion, like cattle, shall eat straw. And an infant shall play over the hole of an old snake and over the eyeball of an adder, a weaned child shall stretch forth his hand. They shall neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mount, for the land shall be full of knowledge of the Lord as water covers the seabed.’”
