Law of Moses

Is the whole body of the Mosaic legislation (1 Kings 2:3; 2Kings 23:25; Ezra 3:2). It is called by way of eminence simply "the Law" (Heb. Torah, Deuteronomy 1:5; 4:8,44; 17:18,19; 27:3,8). As a written code it is called the "book of the law of Moses" (2 Kings 14:6; Isaiah 8:20), the "book of the law of God" (Joshua 24:26).

The great leading principle of the Mosaic law is that it is essentially theocratic; i.e., it refers at once to the commandment of God as the foundation of all human duty.
