Mark 12:28-31 New International Version

The Great 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.[1] 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.'[2] 31  The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[3]There is no commandment greater than these."
