Yeshayahu called to be a Navi
Secrets of Yeshayahu and example for Tamidim
6:1 In the year that melekh Uziyah (עזּיּה) died I saw also *ADONAI (יהוה) sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His robe filled the Heikhal (temple).
6:2 Above it stood the Seraphim (שׂרפים): each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
6:3 And one cried to another, and said,
"Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh, isADONAI (יהוה) Tzva'ot (צבא): the whole earth is full of His glory.
6:4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
6:5 Then said I,
Woe [is] me! for I am undone; because
I [am] a man of unclean lips,
and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, ADON AI(יהוה) Tzva'ot (צבא).
6:6 Then flew one of the Seraphim (שׂרפים) to me, having a live coal in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
6:7 And he laid [it] upon my mouth, and said, Hinei, this hav eouched your lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and
your sin purged.
6:8 Also I heard the voice of *ADON AI(יהוה), saying,
Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?
Then said I:
Here [am] I; send me.
Vayomer lekh veamarta laam hazeh shimu shamoa veal-tavinu ureu rao veal-tedau:
And He said, Go, and tell this people:
*Keep on hearing but do not understand; Keep on Seeing, but do not perceive.'
6:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
6:11 Then said I,
*ADONAI(יהוה), how long?
And He answered:
Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the batim (houses) without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
6:12 And ADON AI(יהוה) have removed men far away, and [there be] a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
6:13 But yet in it [shall be] a tenth, and [it] shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance [is] in them, when they cast [their leaves: so] the Set apart seed [shall be] the substance thereof.

The Ethics of the sages or PIRKEI AVOT or the Ethics of the fathers 1:2 Says
Shimon HaTzadik was among the last of Great Assembly. He used to say,
The world rest on three things
on Wisdom (Torah)
on Surrender (Servanthood) give your right to Messiah
on compassion Gemilut Hachasidim act of kindness to some one who does not deserve.
Yeshayahu 6:3 And one cried to another, and said, "Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh, is HASHEM (ADONAI) Tzva'ot (צבא): the whole earth is full of His glory. Rabbi Abin likened the two exhortations to holiness to the case of the citizens who made three crowns for the king, and the king placed one on his own head and two on the heads of his sons. Similarly, every day the celestial beings crown God with three sanctities, calling him, in the words of Isaiah 6:3, "Holy, holy, holy." God then places one crown of holiness on God's own head and two crowns of holiness on the head of Israel
