Matthew 22:37-38

Context
22:37 Jesus 1  said to him, “‘Love 2  the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 3  22:38 This is the first and greatest 4  commandment.

1 tn Grk “And he”; the referent (Jesus) 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 threefold reference to different parts of the person says, in effect, that one should love God with all one’s being.

4 tn Grk “the great and first.”
