25 When I turn[a] my attention to you,[b]
    I’ll refine your dross as in a furnace.[c]
        I’ll remove[d] all your alloy.
26 Let me restore[e] your judges as at the first,
    and your counselors as at the beginning.
Afterward you’ll be called ‘The Righteous City’
    and ‘The Faithful City of Zion’.[f]

27 “Zion[g] will be redeemed by justice,
    and her repentant ones[h] by righteousness.
