[17] “Law“He shall vow by Apollo and give security. If he dreads the course of justice, let him flee.””

Here to “vow” is to “swear,” and “flee” is what we now call “run away.”“Law“Whosoever debars with his door, when the thief is within,””—Here to “debar” is taken to be “shut out”; no dispute, now, on that score!
