Then the LORDsaid to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'You yourselves have seen that 1I have spokenato you from heaven.
'2You shall not make other gods besides Me; 3gods of silver or gods of gold, you shall not make for yourselves.
'You shall make4an altar of earth for Me, and you shall sacrifice on it your 5burntofferings and your 6peaceofferings, 7your sheep and your oxen; in everyplace8where I cause My name to be remembered, I will come to you and bless you.
25'If you make an altar of stone for Me, 9you shall not build it of cutstones, for if you wield your tool on it, you will profane it.
'And you shall not go up by steps to My altar, so that 10your nakedness will not be exposed on it.'
