Could the oppressed ever find relief from the present-day Judges and Counselors? Isaiah of Jerusalem says, “Yes!”

Isaiah 1:24-28
“Therefore the Lord, the Lord Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: ‘Ah, I will get relief from my foes and avenge myself on my enemies. I will turn my hand against you; I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove all your impurities. I will restore your judges as in the days of old, your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City. Zion will be redeemed with justice, her penitent ones with righteousness. But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the Lord will perish.'”
Isaiah 32:5-8
“No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. For the fool speaks folly; his mind is busy with evil; he practices ungodliness and spreads error concerning the Lord; the hungry he leaves empty and from the thirsty he withholds water. The scoundrel’s methods are wicked; he makes up evils schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just. But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.”

Imagine your city being called, “a City of Righteousness and Justice.”
