"With the Hands of Humans Under Their Wings"

A sin is not an isolated act but represents the intent and will to sin and it encompasses the man. Thus, under normal conditions, one would not be able to extricate oneself from the spiritual decline. Chazal related to this and said: "What shall the sinner do? Prophecy and wisdom were asked this question and could find no answer for the sinner. Only Hakodosh Boruch Hu Himself said: Let him repent and he will be redeemed."

As it is brought, the foundation of the fall of sin is to be found already at the creation of man. The world was created through the letter `hei,' but a special creation was required to incorporate teshuva into the world itself.

"Yish'i" refers to Yom Kippur.

Spiritual salvation is greater than all other salvations. This deliverance actually exists by us and it enables every single individual Jew to merit purification before Hashem. The Rosh Yeshiva of Chevron, HaRav Yechezkel Sarna, quoted: Fortunate are you, Yisroel. Who purifies you? Your Father in Heaven.

There is a difference between salvation and redemption of a worldly kind and a spiritual one. Every kind of the former can come about as a gift, gratis, through the merciful kindness of Hashem as incorporated in the world which was created through chessed. Olam chessed yiboneh.
