26 I will restore your judges[a] as at first,
    and your counselors as in the beginning;
After that you shall be called
    city of justice, faithful city.(A)

Footnotes

  1. 1:26 Judges: the reference must be to royal judges appointed by David and his successors, not to the tribal judges of the Book of Judges, since the “beginning” of Jerusalem as an Israelite city dates only to the time of David. The Davidic era is idealized here; obtaining justice in the historical Jerusalem of David’s time was more problematic (see 2 Sm 15:1–6).
