that men utter.24 Who can escape his impending wrath?25 For the Son of Man shall  send His angels and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend  and them that do iniquity26 and bind them into bundles to be burnt,27 and shall  cast them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and gnashing of  teeth,28 groans and screams, outcries, lamentation and torment, roaring and  shouting, fear and trembling, sorrow and suffering, fire and stench, doubt and  anxiety, violence and cruelty, ruin and poverty, distress and dejection, oblivion  and confusion, tortures and woundings, troubles and terrors, hunger and thirst,  cold and heat, brimstone and burning fire for ever and ever. Therefore let each  beware of that judgment where the judge is terribly strict, intolerably severe,  offended beyond measure and vehemently angered, whose sentence none can  commute, from whose prison there is no escape, whose punishments are without  end, his tormentors horrible, who never grow weary, never pity, whom fear does  not disturb, conscience condemn, thoughts reproach, and who may not flee. Hence  the blessed Augustine, O how far too great are my sins, wherefore when one has  God as a rightful judge and his conscience as witness, let him fear nothing except  his cause.29

For the  authority of custom and long use is not slight.37
What justice is.
 38Since from justice, as from a fountain-head, all rights arise and what justice  commands jus provides, let us see what justice is and whence it is so called.39 Also  what jus is and whence it is so called and what its precepts are, and
