148. "And these words..." (Devarim 6:6). Rabbi Yitzchak opened, "All my bones shall say, Hashem, who is like You, who delivers the poor from him that is too strong for him, and the poor and the needy from him that robs him?" (Tehilim 35:10). David said that verse by the Holy Spirit. HE ASKS, "All my bones shall say:" who has seen bones reciting poetry? AND HE ANSWERS, This verse WAS SAID of the time the Holy One, blessed be He, will resurrect the dead. And the Holy One, blessed be He, will fix the bones and draw each to its place, as it is written, "and the bones came together, bone to its bone" (Yechezkel 37:7), and, "and make strong your bones" (Yeshayah 58:11). Then YISRAEL will recite poetry.
149. HE ASKS, What kind of poetry will they recite, AND HE ANSWERS, "Hashem, who is like You." This poetry is more valuable than the one Yisrael recited by the sea, because they mentioned the Holy Name only after three words, as it is written, "Who is like You, Hashem, among the Elim" (Shemot 15:11). But here they put the Holy Name first, as it is written, "Hashem, who is like You." "who delivers the poor from him that is too strong for him" refers to the Good Inclination, WHO DELIVERS HIM from the Evil Inclination, since the Evil Inclination is hard as a rock, as it is written, "and I will take away the stony heart" (Yechezkel 36:26). And the Good Inclination is flesh, as it is written, "and I will give you a heart of flesh" (Ibid.).
