Blessing after reading the Megillah.
I was wondering why the Hebrew alphabeit is along the side of the blessing in the Tanach. Thanks.

Here is the text of the blessing in English:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who wages our battles, defends our rights, avenges the wrong done to us, punishes our oppressors in behalf, and brings retribution upon all our mortal enemies. Blessed are You Lord, who exacts payment in behalf of His people Israel from all their oppressors; God who delivers. (Amen)

(I got it from our printable bilingual Megillah chabad.org/media/pdf/273/LuRF2731060.pdf)

blessing after megillah reading
I did not see the translation of the long blessing said after reading the Megillah when a minyan is present. Where may I find it on the web?
