When Kings and Princes Love God - part 2

What would this good government look like?  Isaiah paints a picture in vv2-5 of chapter 32.

First - "Instead of being exploited by their rulers (e.g. 1:23; 29:21), the common people will be defended and cared for by them." - Webb, p136.

Second - A reversal of the blindness and deafness (e.g. 6:9-10) so that seeing, hearing, and understanding God's ways will become manifestly clear.  Imagine leaders who clearly and exuberantly responded to God's Word!

Third - People will be judged righteously and lawfully (v5).
