The Bible speaks about a number of laws that God has established for humanity. They include the following.

The Law Of Moses

The Law of Moses was given specifically to Israel. Moses wrote.

And Moses commanded them, saying: "At the end of every seven years, at the appointed time in the year of release, at the Feast of Tabernacles, "when all Israel comes to appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing. "Gather the people together, men and women and little ones, and the stranger who is within your gates, that they may hear and that they may learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully observe all the words of this law, "and that their children, who have not known it, may hear and learn to fear the Lord your God as long as you live in the land which you cross the Jordan to possess (Deuteronomy 31:10-13).

The Law Of God

Paul spoke of the law of God.

For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (Romans 2:12).

The Law Of Conscience

There is also a law of conscience.

For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, 15who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) (Romans 2:14-15).

The Law Of Works

Scripture speaks of a law of works

Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith. Romans 3:27

The Law Of Faith

There is also a law of faith

Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith. (Romans 3:27).

The Law Of Spirit Of Life And The Law Of Sin And Death

Paul wrote of the law of spirit of life as well as the law of sin and death.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:2).

The Law Of Righteousness

There is a law of righteousness.

But Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness (Romans 9:31).

The Law Was Good

Paul said the law was good.

What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, "You shall not covet" (Romans 7:7).

The Law Of Love

Paul spoke of the law of love.

Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law (Romans 13:8-10).

The Royal Law

James wrote of the royal law.

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. (James 2:8-10).

Summary

God has established a number of laws in the universe. These laws are good. They include the Law of Moses, the law of sin and death, the law of God, the law of righteousness, the law of love, and the royal law.
