Perek Shirah: The House Goose – The Only Living Eye Witness

The house goose sings “Hodu L’ashem Kiru Bishmo Hodi’u Ba’amim Alilosov”, thank Hashem, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people (Tehilim 105:1). Why the house goose? Why are they calling to all the nations.

Rav Sasson Chazan in his Sefer HaShira HaZos explains as follows. In Tehilim (117) it says, “Halelu Es Hashem Kol Goyim…” the goyim will praise Hashem for the kindness. The gemara in Pesachim (118b) as explained according to the meforshim, say that only the goyim who have plotted against us whose plots were constantly foiled by Hashem, know the amazing kindness that Hashem has done with us. We ourselves have no idea because these devious plans never came to fruition.

A house duck hangs around the house seeing the things that we do not. For example, a burglar may be stalking a Yid’s house in middle of the night, when suddenly the Yid wakes up to take a drink. The burglar is scared off and the only eyewitness is the house goose, taking this all in from the outside.

It is impossible for us to realize all the good Hashem does for us because much of it takes place behind our back. However the house goose is watching. Listen to it praise Hashem and follow suit, because in its song it is telling your story.

Perek Shira: The Snake’s Song – Taking a Plunge

No creature in history has taken a fall like the snake. This once companion of man, with legs that would carry him all over the world and a mind to match, went from top of the totem pole to the bottom after he persuaded Chava to eat from the Eitz HaDaas. With his legs chopped off he not only became worthless to man but he is now hunted as man’s arch enemy. Some would say he got off easy. After all he wrecked history and brought evil into man. Annihilation and extinction seem like a fair punishment. Nevertheless the snake has survived even in its low state.

How did it manage to continue to live and eat after having his legs removed? Only through Hashem’s goodness. Hashem gave the snake the ability to survive on any form of food even the dust that it slithers around in. Does it mind to bland diet? Not really. Hashem made it so, that even if it ate the finest delicacies it would still taste like dust. This eases the snake’s pain and longing for better food.

The Snake sings “Someich Hashem L’Chol Hanoflim”, Hashem support all those who fall. Even if you are the root cause of your own falling, Hashem not only preserves you, he also gives you new tools to adjust to your new status. Should you one day take a plunge in your status in this world, learn from the snake and hang in there. You can survive. Hashem will see to it!

Rav Volbe Warns All Husbands Of The Dire Consequences

Rav Volbe (Kuntras Hadracha LaChasanim) brings from the Rav Chaim Vital the following incredible chidush. He says that a person’s Middos are measured “Ach V’RaK” meaning exclusively, by the way he deals with his wife.

Rav Volbe explains that if a person does chesed his whole life with many people, he lends money, visits the sick, comforts the bereaved, gladdens the hearts of Choson and Kallah, surely he will reap the rewards for his many good deeds at the end of his life.

However, says Rav Volbe, it is a clear fact that in Shamayim they check how you acted towards your wife. If you were kind and caring with her as well then you are indeed very fortunate. However, if you were tough with her and ignored her needs, and in your home you were strict and became angry without mercy, and you didn’t help and carry the burden, this will weigh your judgement for the bad. In this case when you get to Shamayim they will not remember even a single act of Chesed that you did with other people. (Holchei Nesivos)
