After making this statement, Mosiah sets up a system of government based on mortal men acting as judges. However, these men are not to judge by their own wisdom but are to judge this people according to the commandments of God. In king David’s last recorded psalm, he reiterated this concept, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God (2 Sam 23:3). This system should be as just as possible—second only to being directly subject to the Righteous Judge. In the Millenium, this will happen as Isaiah explained, the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king (Isa 33:22).
