More than All Burnt Offerings and Sacrifices

And one of the scribes came,… and … asked him, “Which is the first commandment of all?

And Jesus answered him, “The first of all commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

And thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all they soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment

And the second is the like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  There is none other commandment greater than these.

And the scribe said unto min. “Well, Mather thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and thre is none other but he:

And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the soul and all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

And when Jesus saw that e answered discreetly, he said unto him, “Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.”

Mark 12:28-34(AV)
