It is constant and eternal;” • Does not change or go away; universal; timeless “It is wrong to pass laws obviating this law; It is not permitted to abrogate any of it; it cannot be totally repealed. We cannot be released from this law by the senate or the people, and it needs to exegete or interpreter like Sextus Aelius.” • Cannot be changed (amended)
