(18 ) Love
17 (M)You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but (N)you shall reason frankly with your neighbor, lest you (O)incur sin because of him. 18 (P)You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but (Q)you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
Loving God does not diminish our troubles, sometimes it may increase our troubles because it places us as enemies of a worldly system that does not love God or those who love God. We are to choose love over hate, faith over fear, and security in Jesus even if we face worldly trouble.
We demonstrate that we have overcome sin and death by replacing fear with faith, hate with love and truth. If we return in kind with what the world dishes out to those who love God we are no better than the world.
Love and sacrifice (I John 3:16- 17). Fearful people are unable to help others because they are in the business of self-preservation. But those who love God can equally love others, even if it costs them something. Just as loving sinners cost Jesus His life, loving others may bring with it sacrifices that are costly, but God-glorifying.
Love and action (v. 18). If we are loved in Jesus Christ and if we are called to love others in the same way, then if we only say we love others but do not love others by our actions we do not love. We are not to love in bragging words or vain talking; we are to love in deed and in truth. We are not to say that we love others, yet do not back up our word with our deeds. Instead, we love through action.
Sonnet 18 contains the elements of a classic sonnet. It is written in 14 lines and contains the rhyme scheme ababcdcdefefgg. The first and third lines and second and fourth lines rhyme, and the pattern continues until the last two lines, both of which rhyme. In addition, the poem is written in iambic pentameter. Each line has 10 syllables, with the first unaccented and the second accented. As a unit of writing, the sonnet has an organic beauty that depends on the balance of symmetrical and asymmetrical form and melody. And historically, sonnets have contained strong themes of love. As a result, Shakespeare uses the sonnet form to highlight his message about his beloved and their magnificent appearance.
Something striking about this poem is how neat and perfectly tied up it is. Every single line is in perfect iambic pentameter and there is no enjambment. While the poetry is elegant and written in high and elevated language, the poem is still easy to read. The perfect adherence to the classic sonnet form may work to demonstrate the perfection of the beloved being described. This works well with the dominant theme of the poem.
Ever been so in love that the object of your affections is all you can think about? Then you were head over heels for them. The idiom head over heels describes the action of falling down or doing a somersault. (Originally the expression was heels over head, but it, well, flipped during the 1700s.) In other words, if you are head over heels for someone, you are thoroughly in love with them.
What is the farthest distance you can imagine from where you are right now? Probably somewhere in outer space, right? That is the thinking behind the hyperbolic expression love you to the moon and back: you love them as much as you can possibly imagine loving someone. While the origins of this expression are a little obscure, it may have been inspired by the moon race in the 1960s. At any rate, the meaning is clear. If you love someone to the moon and back, you really love them a lot.
The word lovebirds is another animal-inspired idiom used to describe a couple. Lovebirds are small parrots, particularly Agapornis, that live as bonded pairs. So the word lovebirds can describe couples who display similar behavior, acting affectionately towards each other.
When you are lying in bed with the person you love, they may whisper sweet nothings in your ear. The expression sweet nothings refers to the kind of nonsensical, sappy things that lovers will say to one another. Another word to describe this kind of dopey language is sweet talk.
A couple that is particularly affectionate with each other can be described as lovey-dovey. The origins of this phrase are a little obscure. It is possible that dove, as in the bird also known as a pigeon, simply rhymes well with love. Another possible explanation is that doves are particularly affectionate towards their mates and are used as a symbol for love. Whatever the origin, when two people act all lovey-dovey, they are really in love.
Byron was as controversial as he was famous, even in his own time. Despite (or maybe because of) his infamy, his love poetry has become a staple of the craft. The great, sweeping passions we expect from our poets are often held to the standard he set.
Unlike Byron, Keats lived and died in obscurity. Since then, however, his has become practically a household name. The famous love he had with Fanny Brawne is no small part of his legacy, and the poems and letters he wrote for her are the height of romantic literature.
Everyman Anthologies are well known, and for good reason. This collection covers the essential love poetry from across the globe. This is perfect for anyone just starting to read love poetry or who wants to have all their favorite verses in one place.
This collection will shatter any notion that love poetry books are all stuffy, chaste, bore-fests. From ancient Egypt to modern America, these works show that poets have always been some of the sexiest, edgiest writers in the world.
Trust Bukowski to bring us the least romantic title on this list. There is little trace here of the swooning, moonlit love of traditional love poems. Instead, these poems press to the limits of love and heartbreak.
This love poetry book is more than just a collection. Leav takes her readers on a journey from the exciting start to the crushing end of a love affair. She relies on powerful emotion rather than complex structure to reach the reader, and it works.
Giovanni is one of the most loved living poets in America. She is known for her openness and a willingness to have fun with poetry. This collection includes all her love poems over her career, including those on motherhood and family.
Chapter 19, vv. 1-18, are below in English and Hebrew. They culminate, in v. 18, with "And you shall love your fellow man as yourself." (Translation by Robert Alter. Biblical text translation below is NewJPS.) As Alter writes in his translation with commentary The Five Books of Moses (W.W. Norton & Co., 2004) on this chapter, "When the sundry injunctions here conclude with the reiterated formula 'I am the Lord,' the implication is 'I am the Lord your God Who is holy." (p. 625)
Lev. 19:34: "... the stranger that lives among you. And you shall love him as yourself." Just as it is written of Jews (Vayikra 19:18) "and you shall love your fellow as yourself," so is it written of proselytes "and you shall love him as yourself." "for you were strangers in the land of Egypt": Know the soul of the strangers, for you yourselves were strangers in the land of Egypt."
It is mandatory upon every man to love each and every one of Israel even as he loves his own self, for it is said: "But thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself" (Lev. 19.19.). One is therefore, obliged to speak in praise of his neighbor, and to be considerate of his money, even as he is considerate of his own money, or desires to preserve his own honor. "But whosoever glorifies himself in disgracing his neighbor has no share in the world to come" (Yerushalmi, Hegigah. 2.1).
The love for the proselyte, who came and embraced the protection beneath the wings of the Shekinah, rests upon two mandatory commandments, one because he is included in the commandment concerning a neighbor, and the other because he is a stranger, and the Torah charged us, saying: "Love ye therefore the stranger" (Deut. 10.19.). He commanded on the love for the stranger as He commanded concerning the love for Himself, saying: "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God" (Ibid. 6.5.). The Holy One, blessed is He! loves the strangers Himself, even as it is said: "And (He) loveth the stranger" (Ibid. 10.18).
Ben Azzai is implying that all human beings are created equal and in the image of God. That is the reason that we must treat each human being as holy, Israelite or not-Israelite. It also answers the question, How can we be commanded to love, which is a feeling? As Art Green writes in his lovely little book Judaism's 10 Best Ideas: A Brief Guide for Seekers, (chapter 2, "Tzelem Elohim - Creation in God's Image"): "Ben Azzai offers a principle to which there can be no exceptions, since it goes right back to Adam and Eve. Every human being is created in the image of God. Love them or not, neighbor or enemy, you must treat them all as you would treat God's image."
The commandment of love of Israel: To love [with] love of the soul each one of Israel - meaning to say that we have compassion for an Israelite and for his money, [just] like a person has compassion for himself and for his [own] money; as it stated (Leviticus 19:18), "you shall love your neighbor as yourself." And they, may their memory be blessed, said (Shabbat 31a), "What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow." And they said in Sifra, Kedoshim, Chapter 4:12, "Rabbi Akiva said, 'This is a great principle in the Torah'" - meaning to say that many commandments are dependent upon it. As one that loves his fellow like himself will not steal his money, have adultery with his wife, cheat his money from him nor hurt him from any angle. And so [too,] are there several other commandments dependent on this - the thing is well-known [revealed] to all who have intellect. 041b061a72
