Why are we so focused on the return of the hobbit? Some were sent across the sea to get him (Kings I 8:43)
וַיֹּאמֶר אֶל־נַעֲרוֹ עֲלֵה־נָא הַבֵּט דֶּרֶךְ־יָם - He said to his servant, "Go up to the hobbit by way of the sea
other times we ask for him to be sent from Heaven (Tehillim 80:15)
אֱלֹקים צְבָאוֹת שׁוּב־נָא הַבֵּט מִשָּׁמַיִם - Almighty please return the hobbit from Heaven
and twice a week in Tachanun we plead for him
הַבֶּט נָא רַחֶם נָא עַל עַמְךָ מְהֵרָה - please [send us the] hobbit, have mercy on your people!
