Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMark 12:32
- And the scribe said (eipen autwi o grammateuv).
- Mark alone gives the reply of the scribe to Jesus which is a mere repetition of what Jesus had said about the first and the second commandments with the additional allusion to 1 Samuel 15:22 about love as superior to whole burnt offerings.
- Well (kalwv).
- Not to be taken with "saidst" (eipev) as the Revised Version has it following Wycliff. Probably kalwv (well) is exclamatory. "Fine, Teacher. Of a truth (ep' alhteiav) didst thou say."
