The Frog - From Perek Shira

     The frog chastised King David when he felt pride in writing Sefer Tehillim (Psalms). "My song to God is loftier; I sing the praises of God all day and all night!" From the frog's croaking, we learn to approach the study of Torah with consistency and persistence. The frog symbolizes utter self-sacrifice in obedience to God. When God commanded the frogs to swarm throughout the land of Egypt in the second plague, they did not hesitate, even jumping into hot ovens. Whether we croak or sing, the ultimate praise of God is that we serve Him with whatever talents He gives us.

     The song of the frog is taken not from scripture, but from the Talmud's account of the end of Jacob's life. He feared that his sons would not follow in his footsteps, and might reject his dedication to God. They reassured him by saying at his deathbed, "Hear, O Israel (another name for Jacob), the Lord is our God, the Lord is One." So overjoyed was he at hearing this, that with his dying breath he said, "Blessed is the name of His glorious kingdom for ever and ever."

The Frog says,
     "Blessed is the Name of the honor of His Glorious Kingdom for all eternity!"
      - Talmud, Pesachim 56a

Perek Shira is the song that is sung every day by God's creations, each creation having its own song. Please see this category's section page for more of an explanation.
