26 I will reestablish honest judges as in former times,
wise advisers as in earlier days.[a]
Then you will be called, ‘The Just City,
Faithful Town.’”

  1. Isaiah 1:26 tn Heb “I will restore your judges as in the beginning, and your counselors as in the beginning.” In this context, where social injustice and legal corruption are denounced (see v. 23), the “judges” are probably government officials responsible for making legal decisions, while the “advisers” are probably officials who helped the king establish policies. Both offices are also mentioned in 3:2.
