Headword: Νόμος
Adler number: nu,485
Translated headword: law
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
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]
Greek Original:
Νόμος κατὰ τὸν Ἀπόστολον σημαίνει δ#: ὁ τοῦ θεοῦ: περὶ οὗ φησι: συνήδομαι γὰρ τῷ νόμῳ τοῦ θεοῦ. καὶ ὁ ἀντιστρατευόμενος. τρίτος, περὶ οὗ φησι: τῷ νόμῳ τοῦ νοός μου. τέταρτος, περὶ οὗ λέγει: τῷ νόμῳ τῷ ὄντι ἐν τοῖς μέλεσί μου. ὅτι τοὺς τοῦ Σόλωνος νόμους ἄξονας Ἀθηναῖοι ἐκάλεσαν διὰ τὸ ἐγγραφῆναι αὐτοὺς ἐν ξυλίνοις ἄξοσιν. ἦσαν δὲ τετράγωνοι τὸ σχῆμα, κατὰ δέ τινας μᾶλλον τρίγωνοι.

[1] Romans 7.22-23. St.Paul’s text in its context reads: "I delight in the law of God after the inward man. But I am aware that another law in my members fights against the law of my mind, and makes me captive to the law of sin which is in my members".
