Enegue posted an excellent answer on another question which I believe does double duty as an answer to this question. First he pointed out that Daniel 7:22 KJV says that judgment is given to the saints:
Dan 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to
the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints
possessed the kingdom.
It turned out that there is some ambiguity in the text as to whether it was a "favorable" judgment that was given or the role of judge. I raised that concern and again Enegue pointed out that given the context either way you understand the "judgment" being "given" it still grants them the power to judge:
...Regardless of how one interprets verse 22, verse 27 makes it
abundantly clear the saints are given dominion of the kingdom: "And
the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the
whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most
High". Dominion, of course, means they get to call the shots, i.e.
exercise judgment. – enegue May 23 at 22:36
I suggested that he post it as an answer but declined so I've "plagiarized" his insight here:
Any ambiguity that may be present in Daniel 7:22, can be resolved by considering this: the judgment of the LORD "rendered in favor of" the saints, is that judgment "be committed" to the saints.
This is precisely what Daniel says at the conclusion to the chapter.
26But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. 27And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
-- Daniel 7:26-27 (KJV)
"the judgment shall sit", i.e. that dominion be taken from the horn who made war with the saints, and be given to the saints. Dominion (שָׁלְטָן Strong's H7985 - sholtan (Aramaic)) concerns sovereignty -- the responsibility of government, which means judgment of "the kingdom under the whole heaven" will be committed to the saints.https://hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/33166/in-daniel-722-is-judgment-committed-to-the-saints-or-rendered-in-favor-of-t/33184?s=1|132.9346#33184
