Beza On The First Use Of The Law

There then is the first use of the preaching of the law; to make known our innumerable faults so that in ourselves we begin to be miserable and greatly humble ourselves; in short, to beget in us the first degree of repentance which is called “contrition of heart”; this produces a full and open confession toward the Lord.
