An ancient Jewish tradition states that after the miraculous deliverance of Judah from the Assyrian invasion, God desired to crown the righteous King Hezekiah as the Messiah. Only one thing was required – that Hezekiah would sing a song of praise before Him. Instead, Hezekiah arose that morning, and continued with his regular daily routine, the study of the Torah, until Isaiah instructed him to sing. Unfortunately, once the singing was a response to a command, and not spontaneous, the opportunity was lost. In this verse, Isaiah teaches the importance of appreciating everything that occurs for us, and being able to sing praise for it before God. Just as we are encouraged to appreciate our blessings, Karmey Chesed ("Vineyards of Kindness") remembers those in need throughout Israel, supplying food and warm clothing all winter.
