Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 19:18


19:18 Thy neighbour - Every man, as plainly appears, By comparing this place with #Lev 19:34|, where this law is applied to strangers. Because the word neighbour is explained by another man, #Lev 20:10 Rom 13:8|. As thyself - With the same sincerity, though not equality of affection.
