Nay, even magistrates ought to do their utmost to prevent the liberty, of which they have been appointed guardians, from being impaired, far less violated. Yale Law Professor Abbe Gluck. Some one, perhaps, may here break in and say, that such moderation in judicial proceedings is so far from being seen, that an instance of it would be a kind of prodigy. That it extends to both tables of the law, did Scripture not teach, we might learn from profane writers; for no man has discoursed of the duty of magistrates, the enacting of laws, and the common weal, without beginning with religion and divine worship.

Let us instead apply the Word of God to all of life. The book is not wholly concerned with civil law, as one might expect. But all magistrates must here be particularly cautious not to give way, in the slightest degree, to their passions. On this all Christians should be able to agree.

Madmen and prodigals, although past the age of twenty-five, are yet placed under the curatorship of their agnati by the law of the Twelve Tables. Hence, also, in an enumeration of the virtues of a king, one is to cut off the wicked from the earth, and banish all workers of iniquity from the city of God. The law of God forbids to steal. The Old Testament law was a good thing, and to believe otherwise is to reject the God of the law.
