12:28 And one of the scribes, having come before (him), having heard them debating ...
  perceived that he answered them ideally ...
  asked him ... Which precept is first of all?
12:29 Jesus answered that the first is ... Hear, Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord.
12:30 And you shall love the Lord our God out of your whole heart ...
  and out of your whole soul ...
  and out through your whole mind ...
  and out of your whole strength.
12:31 Second to it ...
  you should love your neighbor as yourself ...
  There is not another precept greater than these.
12:32 And the scribe said to him ... Ideal!
  Teacher! ... On "truth" you said that He is one ...
  and there is not another more than him.
12:33 And to love him out of the whole heart ...
  and out of the whole understanding ...
  and out of the whole strength ...
  and to love the neighbor as himself ...
  is more significant than all the holocausts and sacrifices.
12:34 And Jesus having perceived that he answered with intelligence ...
  said to him ... You are not far from the Kingdom of God ...
  and nobody anymore dared to question him.
