In relation to the following question:Kulo Tov, I wondered who wrote the hatov v'hameitiv and what its origin is.

(Looking for sources that state that HaShem is [all/completely] good)

  • What is "the hatov v'hameitiv"? Please edit to clarify. A blessing containg those words shows up in a number of places in Halacha. – Double AA Jun 9 '15 at 16:50

This is in a Mishna in Berachos 9:2. The meaning (as stated by Rabbi Ovadia Bartenura there) is that He does good to me and good to others.
