To A'brogate. v.a. [abrogo, Lat.] To take away from a law its force; to repeal, to annul.
Such laws, as have been made upon special occasions, which occasions ceasing, laws of that kind do abrogate themselves. Hooker, b. iv. § 14.
The negative precepts of men may cease by many instruments, by contrary customs, by public disrelish, by long omission: but the negative precepts of God never can cease, but when they are expresly abrogated by the same authority. Taylor's Rule of living holy.
