The Laws of England, Compiled and translated into the Māori language.

§ 5

[i roto i te reo Māori]

§ 5.

The main objects of the Law are two:—to protest right, and to prevent wrong. That which is right is asserted by the Law; and the man who holds that right is protected and supported in his right. The commission of wrong is forbidden by the Law; and, if committed, the Law punishes the man who does that wrong, or makes him pay for doing it, and gives redress to the man who suffered the wrong.
