Matthew 22:35-39 New International Version (NIV)
35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]
Matthew 22:35-40 The Message (MSG)
The Most Important Command
34-36 When the Pharisees heard how he had bested the Sadducees, they gathered their forces for an assault. One of their religion scholars spoke for them, posing a question they hoped would show him up: “Teacher, which command in God’s Law is the most important?”
37-40 Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.”

35 وَسَأَلَهُ وَاحِدٌ مِنْهُمْ، وَهُوَ مِنْ عُلَمَاءِ الشَّرِيعَةِ، يُحَاوِلُ أَنْ يَسْتَدْرِجَهُ: 36 «يَا مُعَلِّمُ، مَا هِيَ الْوَصِيَّةُ الْعُظْمَى فِي الشَّرِيعَةِ؟» 37 فَأَجَابَهُ: «أَحِبّ الرَّبَّ إِلهَكَ بِكُلِّ قَلْبِكَ وَكُلِّ نَفْسِكَ وَكُلِّ فِكْرِكَ! 38 هَذِهِ هِيَ الْوَصِيَّةُ الْعُظْمَى الأُولَى. 39 وَالثَّانِيَةُ مِثْلُهَا: أَحِبّ قَرِيبَكَ كَنَفْسِكَ!
Mark 12:28-31 New International Version (NIV)
The Greatest Commandment
28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[b] 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[c] There is no commandment greater than these.”
Mark 12:28-31 The Message (MSG)
The Most Important Commandment
28 One of the religion scholars came up. Hearing the lively exchanges of question and answer and seeing how sharp Jesus was in his answers, he put in his question: “Which is most important of all the commandments?”
29-31 Jesus said, “The first in importance is, ‘Listen, Israel: The Lord your God is one; so love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy.’ And here is the second: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ There is no other commandment that ranks with these.”

28 وَتَقَدَّمَ إِلَيْهِ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الْكَتَبَةِ كَانَ قَدْ سَمِعَهُمْ يَتَجَادَلُونَ، وَرَأَى أَنَّهُ أَحْسَنَ الرَّدَّ عَلَيْهِمْ، فَسَأَلَهُ: «أَيَّةُ وَصِيَّةٍ هِيَ أُولَى الْوَصَايَا جَمِيعاً؟» 29 فَأَجَابَهُ يَسُوعُ: «أُولَى الْوَصَايَا جَمِيعاً هِيَ: اسْمَعْ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ، الرَّبُّ إِلهُنَا رَبٌّ وَاحِدٌ 30 فَأَحِبَّ الرَّبَّ إِلهَكَ بِكُلِّ قَلْبِكَ وَبِكُلِّ نَفْسِكَ وَبِكُلِّ فِكْرِكَ وَبِكُلِّ قُوَّتِكَ. هذِهِ هِيَ الْوَصِيَّةُ الأُولَى. 31 وَهُنَاكَ ثَانِيَةٌ مِثْلُهَا، وَهِيَ أَنْ تُحِبَّ قَرِيبَكَ كَنَفْسِكَ. فَمَا مِنْ وَصِيَّةٍ أُخْرَى أَعْظَمُ مِنْ هَاتَيْنِ».
