Joshua 22:29

Joshua 22:29

God forbid that we should rebel against the Lord
Against the command of the Lord, who ordered one altar to be made, to which all sacrifices were to be brought from the several parts of the land of Israel, and there to be offered on it; or

``against the Word of the Lord,''

as the Targum, Christ typified both by the altar and the sacrifices on it; and who is but one, one priest, one sacrifice, one altar, one Mediator and Saviour:

and turn this day from following the Lord;
apostatize from him, and from his worship:

to build an altar for burnt offerings, for meat offerings, or for
which was never our intention, or ever entered into our hearts to erect one for such a purpose:

besides the altar of the Lord our God, that [is] before his
it standing in the court of the tabernacle before the holy place.
