THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

22:34But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

22:35Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

22:36Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

22:37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

22:38This is the first and great commandment.

22:39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

22:40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Mark (Author John Mark)

12:28And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

12:29And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

12:30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

12:31And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

12:32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

12:33And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

12:34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
