if you're doing a level ethics, I did them but I never, in particular, heard of "eternal" or "divine" law, only divine command
but natural law suggests that ethical laws exist in nature (and this extends to ethical naturalism in a2) and some theologians e.g. aquinas trace this to the existence of a god
I guess because nature is unchanging that might suggest that there exists unchanging/eternal laws, and some might say that if there are laws of nature e.g. physical and moral laws, then there must be a law maker e.g. god
that's really as far as I can go - honestly I never read anything about those particular terms

Aquinas thought there were four levels of law:
Human Law- e.g the legal system
Natural Law
Divine Law- that written in the Bible, that revealed through revelation
Eternal Law- only known by God

Hopefully haven't mixed anything up!
Hope it helps
