Hammurabi’s code was not just because of the family law, property law, and personal-injury law.

Things back then were a lot harsher that they are now.

Given that Old Ben symbolizes nature Isaacs description shows that he just not view nature as malevolent but he does show some fear which demonstrates a level of respect.
