Matthew 22:34–40

The Greatest Commandment

22:34 Now when the Pharisees38 heard that he had silenced the Sadducees,39 they assembled together.40 22:35 And one of them, an expert in religious law,41 asked him a question to test42 him: 22:36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?”43 22:37 Jesus44 said to him, “ ‘Love45 the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’46 22:38 This is the first and greatest47 commandment. 22:39 The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’48 22:40 All the law and the prophets depend49 on these two commandments.”
