Use uncut stones to build the altar of the Lord your God and offer burnt offerings to the Lord your God on it.a7
There you are to sacrifice fellowship offerings, eat, and rejoice in the presence of the Lord your God.

Moses and the Levitical priests spoke to all Israel, "Be silent, Israel, and listen! This day you have become the people of the Lord your God.
Obey the Lord your God and follow His commands and statutes I am giving you today."
On that day Moses commanded the people,
"When you have crossed the Jordan, these [tribes] will stand on Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin.
And these [tribes] will stand on Mount Ebal to deliver the curse: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.c14
The Levites will proclaim in a loud voice to every Israelite:
'Cursed is the person who makes a carved idol or cast image, which is detestable to the Lord, the work of a craftsman, and sets [it] up in secret.'d And all the people will reply, 'Amen!'
'Cursed is the one who dishonors his father or mother.'e And all the people will say, 'Amen!'
