You must build the altar of the Lord your God of unhewn a stones. Then offer up burnt offerings on it to the Lord your God,
make sacrifices of well-being, and eat them there, rejoicing before the Lord your God.
You shall write on the stones all the words of this law very clearly.
Then Moses and the levitical priests spoke to all Israel, saying: Keep silence and hear, O Israel! This very day you have become the people of the Lord your God.
Therefore obey the Lord your God, observing his commandments and his statutes that I am commanding you today.
The same day Moses charged the people as follows:
When you have crossed over the Jordan, these shall stand on Mount Gerizim for the blessing of the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin.
And these shall stand on Mount Ebal for the curse: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.
Then the Levites shall declare in a loud voice to all the Israelites:
"Cursed be anyone who makes an idol or casts an image, anything abhorrent to the Lord, the work of an artisan, and sets it up in secret." All the people shall respond, saying, "Amen!"
"Cursed be anyone who dishonors father or mother." All the people shall say, "Amen!"
