There are 4 kinds of good: physical, moral, metaphysical, and divine;

but only 3 faculties of judgment: prudence, justice, and wisdom. What gives?

Well, the divine good, or that God is goodness itself, is self-evident to any naturally uncorrupt creature and requires no intellectual exertion to grasp. Nor are there any gradations of divine goodness, as better or worse; nor competing goods; nor any occasion for calculating or maximizing this goodness; nor, finally, any divine evil.

Hence there is no need for a separate faculty to judge the divine good.
