27:6   Yaakov shall strike root

A vineyard on the Judean hills

In chapter 5, Yeshayahu describes Israel as a rebellious vine that produces inferior fruits. Here is the happy conclusion to Hashem’s song to His vineyard. While God may punish, it is not out of anger or fury (verse 4), but the hope that it will lead to harmony between Israel and Hashem. In this chapter, Israel is attached to its land with an unbreakable connection, like a deeply rooted vineyard. As a result, “Yaakov shall strike root, Yisrael shall sprout and blossom, and the face of the world shall be covered with fruit.” Indeed, with the contemporary return of the Jews to Eretz Yisrael, the former desert land has begun to blossom and bud, a sure sign of divine favor.
