According to the Apostle [the term] 'law' has 4 meanings: 'the [law] of God', about which he says: "for I delight in the law of God". [A second meaning is the law] that is opposed [to the law of God]. [There is a] third [meaning of law], about which he says: "[my members fight against] the law of my mind"; and a fourth [meaning], about which he says: "the law which is in my members".[1]
[Note] that the Athenians called 'axles' the laws of Solon, because they had been written on wooden axles. They were square in shape but, according to some people, they were triangular.[2]
