    Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

    --Jeremiah 6:16

    The absolute context for every "love commandment:"

    But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. -- 1Cor 12:31

    Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. --1 Cor 14:1

    Mat 22:37-38--
    Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

    This is the first and great commandment.

    since Jesus said This is the first and great commandment, but He also said:

    Mar 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
    Mar 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
    Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
    Mar 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    just what is that about?

    Mark 12:31 is the object and or subject; between the context I've given. Mark 12:31 is equivalent with 1 Cor 13. The object with the context is equivalent to Micah 6:8--
    He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

    The stronger translation of Micah 6:8 puts "justice" in place of "justly."
