M.IX. I. He who sees a place in which miracles were wrought for Israel 5 says: "Blessed be He who wrought miracles for our fathers in this place." In the, case of a place from which idolatry was uprooted, he says: "Blessed be He who uprooted idolatry from our land."
Ben Zoma saw hosts in the Temple area. He said: Blessed be He who created all these to serve me. How much did Adam toil, and tasted not one mouthful, until he had ploughed, and sowed, and reaped, and harvested, and threshed, and winnowed, and sifted, and ground, and bolted, and kneaded, and baked, and after that he ate! But I arise at dawn and I find all these things already done for me. How much did Adam toil, and clothed himself with not a single garment until he had shorn, and cleansed, and beaten, and dyed, and spun, and weaved, and sewed, and after that he clothed himself! But I arise at dawn and find all these things already done for me. How many trades (i.e. tradesmen) are anxious and rise early! But I arise at dawn and I find all these already done for me.

How many kinds of portions of meat hath he brought before us! How many kinds of fine bread hath he brought before us! All that he did, he did only for my sake. But what does an evil guest say? Well, what have I eaten of his? One bit of bread have I eaten of his; one portion of meat have I eaten of his; one cup have I drunk of his; all that he did, he did only for the sake of his wife and his children. And so it says "Remember that thou magnify His work, whereof men have sung." 3
