[Law] means three things: (1) The [law] was given to men through creation apart from the Scriptures; for what is invisible of God is clearly seen, [being] understood by the things that are made.[1] (2) And elsewhere: "for even when the Gentiles have not the law, they are a law for themselves".[2] And [there is the law] that is offered through Moses in the Scriptures for the sake of those who transgress [it]. And (3) the third [kind of law is the one] through grace. "For the law of the Spirit of life released me from the law of sin and of death".[3]
Greek Original:
Νόμος: τρία σημαίνει: ὁ μὲν γὰρ δίχα γραμμάτων διὰ κτίσεως ἐδόθη τοῖς ἀνθρώποις: τὸ γὰρ ἀόρατον τοῦ θεοῦ τοῖς ποιήμασι νοούμενον καθορᾶται. καὶ πάλιν: ὅταν γὰρ ἔθνη τὰ μὴ νόμον ἔχοντα, οὗτοι ἑαυτοῖς εἰσι νόμος. καὶ ὁ ἐν γράμμασι διὰ Μωσέως τῶν παραβάντων χάριν παρεσχημένος. καὶ τρίτος ὁ διὰ τῆς χάριτος: ὁ γὰρ νόμος τοῦ πνεύματος τῆς ζωῆς ἠλευθέρωσέ με ἀπὸ τοῦ νόμου τῆς ἁμαρτίας καὶ τοῦ θανάτου.
