AND SATIATE US FROM ITS ABUNDANCE

“Satiate us”. Even when the earth does yield abundance, not every man is necessarily able to satiate himself with its goodness. Some are in debt, others are ill; and even those that are able to nourish themselves with the land, we know that it is solely through Your goodness that food can affectively nourish us. “Not by bread alone does a man live, but by what comes from the mouth of Hashem does a man live” (Dvarim 8:3).
