38这 是 诫命 中的第一 ,且是 最大的 。
38This is the first and great commandment.
38 Verse 38. This is the first and great commandment.] It is so,



1. In its antiquity, being as old as the world, and engraven

originally on our very nature.



2. In dignity; as directly and immediately proceeding front and

referring to God.



3. In excellence; being the commandment of the new covenant, and

the very spirit of the Divine adoption.



4. In justice; because it alone renders to God his due, prefers

him before all things, and secures to him his proper rank in

relation to them.



5. In sufficiency; being in itself capable of making men holy in

this life, and happy in the other.



6. In fruitfulness; because it is the root of all commandments,

and the fulfilling of the law.



7. In virtue and efficacy; because by this alone God reigns in

the heart of man, and man is united to God.



8. In extent; leaving nothing to the creature, which it does not

refer to the Creator.



9. In necessity; being absolutely indispensable.



10. In duration; being ever to be continued on earth, and never

to be discontinued in heaven.
