Calvin 365: (13) The first use of the law

Let us survey briefly the function and use of what is called the "moral law." Now, as far as I understand it, it consists of three parts.

The first part us this: while it shows God's righteousness, that is, the righteousness alone acceptable to God, it warns, informs, convicts, and lastly condemns, every man of his own unrighteousness.
Institutes, 2. 7. 6.
