In what two great commandments is the law of God briefly summarized?

Answer

"Thou shall 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. And the second is like unto it, Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Matt. 22: 37-40.
NOTE. - 'Does any man say to me, 'You see, then, instead of the Ten Commandments, we have
received the two commandments, and these are much easier'? I answer that this reading of the law is not in
the least easier. Such a remark implies a want of thought and experience. Those two precepts comprehend
the ten at their fullest extent, and cannot be regarded as the erasure of a jot or tittle of them. Whatever
difficulties surround the ten commands are equally found in the two, which are their sum and substance. If
you love God with all your heart, you keep the first table; and if you love your neighbor as yourself, you
must keep the second table."-"The Perpetuity of the Law of God," by C. H. Spurgeon, page 5.
