Then Moses and the responsible men of Israel gave the people these orders: Keep all the orders which I have given you this day;
And on the day when you go over Jordan into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, put up great stones, coating them with building-paste,
And writing on them all the words of this law, after you have gone over; so that you may take the heritage which the Lord your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has said.
And when you have gone over Jordan, you are to put up these stones, as I have said to you today, in Mount Ebal, and have them coated with building-paste.
There you are to make an altar to the Lord your God, of stones on which no iron instrument has been used.
You are to make the altar of the Lord your God of uncut stones; offering on it burned offerings to the Lord your God:
And you are to make your peace-offerings, feasting there with joy before the Lord your God.
And put on the stones all the words of this law, writing them very clearly.
