12:29 Jesus answered, “The most important is: ‘Listen, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 12:30 Love 1 the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 2
12:33 And to love him with all your heart, with all your mind, and with all your strength 3 and to love your neighbor as yourself 4 is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
