      What did the Puritans understand it to mean? Dr. Owen:


      Q. 5. What was the rule whereby man was at first to be directed in
      his obedience?
      A.
      The moral or eternal law of God,implanted in his nature and written
      in his heart by creation, being the tenor of the covenant between
      God and him, sacramentally typified by the tree of knowledge of
      good and evil.

      Gen. 2:15-17; Rom. 2:14,15; Eph.4:24.
      God never allowed, from the beginning, that the will of the
      creature should be the measure of his worship and honour.

      Excerpted from:

      Two Short Catechisms: Wherein The Principles Of The Doctrine Of
      Christ, Are Unfolded And Explained.

      Proper for all persons to learn before they be admitted to the
      sacrament of the Lord's supper; and composed for the use of all
      congregations in general.

      Chap. 5. - Of the Works of God That Outwardly Are of Him.
