JUDGES IN THE GATES: This papercut shows city gates, with people gathered inside for judgement. The scene is surrounded by a grapevine motif and biblical verses referring to this practice,"You shall make judges and officers in all your gates, which the Lord, your God has given to you for your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgement...Justice, justice you shall pursue that you may live in and inherit the land which the Lord, your God, has given to you."( Deut. 17, 19,23) 16" x 16" (G003)
