Note 1. - "The law of God is a divine law, holy, heavenly, perfect. . . . There is not a command too many; there is not one too few; but it is so incomparable that its perfection is a proof of its divinity. . . . No human lawgiver could have given forth such a law as that which we find in the decalogue." - C. H. Spurgeon.

Note 2. - "If you love God with all your heart, you must keep the first table; and if you love your neighbour as yourself, you must keep the second table." - C. H. Spurgeon in "The Perpetuity of the Law."
"There is a sense in which Christians are not 'free from the law. It is only when grace enables men to keep the law, that they are free from it; just as a moral man who lives according to the laws of the country is free from arrest. God has not set aside the law, but He has found a way by which man can fulfil the law, and so be free from it." - Rev. G. Campbell Morgan in "The Ten Commandments."

Note 3. - "There is no room for that poor evasion with which some have delighted themselves greatly; namely, that the law must pass away that the Gospel might be established." - Wesley's "Sermons," Vol. 1, Sermon 25.

Note 4. - "These ten commandments are not ten different laws; they are one law. If I am being held up in the air by a chain with ten links, and I break one of them, down I come, just as surely as if I break the whole ten. If I am forbidden to go out of an enclosure, it makes no difference at what point I break through the fence. 'Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.' The golden chain of obedience is broken if one link is missing." - D. L. Moody in "Weighed and Wanting."
"In the decay and confusion of all moral standards, the duty of teaching the law of righteousness as well as of declaring the Gospel of love now rests directly upon the church as it has never rested upon it before." - Canon Quick in "British Weekly."
