A Certain Samaritan


Luke 10:25-37 And see, a certain one learned in the Turah stood up, trying Him, and saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit everlasting life?” (26) And He said to him, “What has been written in the Turah? How do you read it?” (27) And he answering, said, “ ‘You shall love YAHUAH your Aluahim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ ” (28) And He said to him, “You have answered rightly. Do this and you shall live.” (29) But he, wishing to declare himself righteous, said to YAHUSHUA, “And who is my neighbor?” (30) And replying, YAHUSHUA said, “A certain man was going down from Yurushalam to Yuricho, and fell among pirates, who, both stripping and beating him, went away, leaving him half dead. (31) “And by a coincidence a certain priest was going down that way. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. (32) “And likewise a Luy (Levite) also, when he came to the place, and seeing, passed by on the other side. (33) “But a certain Shamuruny (Samaritan), journeying, came upon him. And when he saw him, he had compassion on him, (34) and he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. And having placed him on his own beast, he brought him to an inn, and looked after him. (35) “And going out on the next day, he took out two pieces of silver, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Look after him, and whatever more you spend I shall repay you when I return.’ (36) “Who, then, of these three, do you think, was neighbor to him who fell among the pirates?” (37) And he said, “He who showed compassion on him.” Then YAHUSHUA said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

Matatyahu 22:33-40 And when the crowds heard, they were astonished at His teaching. (34) But the Pharisees, having heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, were gathered together, (35) and one of them, one learned in the Turah, did question, trying Him, and saying, (36) “Teacher, which is the great command in the Turah?” (37) And YAHUSHUA said to him, “ ‘You shall love YAHUAH your Aluahim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your mind.’ (38) “This is the first and great command. (39) “And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ (40) “On these two commands hang all the Turah and the Prophets.”

Romans 13:10 Love does no evil to a neighbor. Therefore, love is completion of the Turah.

Galatians 5:14 For the entire Turah is completed in one word, in this, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Yaw’aqub (James) 2:8-18 If you truly accomplish the sovereign law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well, (9) but if you show partiality, you commit sin, being found guilty by the Turah as transgressors. (10) For whoever shall guard all the Turah, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. (11) For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of Turah. (12) So speak and so do as those who are to be judged by a Turah of freedom. (13) For the judgment is without compassion to the one who has shown no compassion. And compassion boasts over judgment. (14) My brothers, what use is it for anyone to say he has belief but does not have works? This belief is unable to save him. (15) And if a brother or sister is naked and in need of daily food, (16) but one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” but you do not give them the bodily needs, what use is it? (17) So also belief, if it does not have works, is in itself dead. (18) But someone might say, “You have belief, and I have works.” Show me your belief without your works, and I shall show you my belief by my works.


Note: Samaritan is derived from the ancient Hebrew word שמור (shamur) which means “watching over, guarded, observed”.
