12 Revised Standard Version Passage

28And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, "Which commandment is the first of all?"The Great Commandment Mk.12.28-34 (Jerusalem) | Mt.22.34-40 | Lk.10.25-28
29Jesus answered, "The first is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one;- Hear, O Israel Mk.12.29 | Dt.6.4-5 | Jos.22.5
30and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' 
31The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."- You shall love your neighbour as yourself Mk.12.31 | Lv.19.18
32And the scribe said to him, "You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that he is one, and there is no other but he;- And the scribe said to him, Mk.12.32 | Dt.6.4 | Dt.4.35 | Is.45.21
33and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." 
34And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And after that no one dared to ask him any question.
