Luke 10:27-28

Context
10:27 The expert 1  answered, “Love 2  the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, 3  and love your neighbor as yourself.” 4  10:28 Jesus 5  said to him, “You have answered correctly; 6  do this, and you will live.”

1 tn Grk “And he”; the referent (the expert in religious law, shortened here to “the expert”) has been specified in the translation for clarity. Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “You will love.” The future indicative is used here with imperatival force (see ExSyn 452 and 569).

3 sn A quotation from Deut 6:5. The fourfold reference to different parts of the person says, in effect, that one should love God with all one’s being.

4 tn This portion of the reply is a quotation from Lev 19:18. The verb is repeated in the translation for stylistic reasons.

5 tn Grk “And he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity. Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

6 sn Jesus commends the reply (you have answered correctly). What is assumed here, given the previous context, is that he will respond to Jesus’ message, as to love God is to respond to his Son; see v. 22.
