Therefore we said
One to another, in order to prevent the apostasy of our children from God, their departure from his worship, and going into idolatry:
let us now prepare to build us an altar;
get materials ready, and set about it instantly, without any delay, while the thing dwells upon our minds:
not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice;
not for offerings of any kind required by the law, neither for sin offerings nor trespass offerings, nor any other not named.
