Traduction française
Again, law is more serviceable than the oracular responses of the gods in the that, 
while there have been some who did not understand the oracles, and, supposing that 
they were acting in harmony with them, have done the very opposite — which 
accounts, I imagine, for their having met with disaster — from the law there proceeds 
nothing which is tortuous or ambiguous, but, instead, it puts in simple phrases 
everything which is appropriate for those who are in need.
