The word "judges," here and in Exodus 22:9, is elohim, the Hebrew word for "God." It is a plural noun, and is sometimes rendered "gods" (Psalm 82:1). These judges were authorized to enforce God's law and thus were considered, when sitting in judgment, as representing Him. See the reference by the Lord Jesus in John 10:34,35.
