ויהללו את שמך באמת
AND THEY SHOULD PRAISE YOUR NAME IN TRUTH

‘הלל’ denotes enthusiastic praise. We must go wild with praise to Hashem – but we must do it ‘in truth’. This requires that we set aside time to study our lives and recognize the kindnesses of Hashem, both that He bestows upon all men, and that He bestows specifically upon us. And, of course, we must always keep in front of our eyes that all of the benefits and kindliness that we see are all straight from Hashem, despite all the intermediaries and apparent causes that attempt to conceal His great and kindly hand.
