(megilla; the Hebrew title for the Book of Esther

** Actually, Peter, the word "megilla" means "scroll."
Five books of the Bible are considered megillot:
The Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes,
and Esther. Amusingly, none of them is particularly
long, and the Apocrypha purports to include "The rest
of the chapters of the Book of Esther, which are found
neither in the Hebrew nor in the Chaldee," so maybe
Esther isn't even the whole megilla...

"Hear my prayer, and be merciful unto thine inheritance; turn
our sorrow into joy, that we may live, O Lord, and praise
thy name." - [the rest of] Esther
