The old judges ask for Susanna to appear in court (Dan 13:28-13:29)

“The next day,

When the people gathered

At the house

Of her husband Joakim,

The two elders came.

They were full

Of their wicked plot

To have Susanna

Put to death.

In the presence

Of the people,

They said.

‘Send for Susanna!

The daughter of Hilkiah!

The wife of Joakim!’”

The next day, these old judges went to the house of Joakim, as they usually did. They had this wicked plot to have Susanna put to death. Then, before all the assembled people, they demanded that Susanna, the daughter of Hilkiah and the husband of Joakim be brought forward. She was to stand trial before their accusations.
