20:22 55 The Lord said56 to Moses: “Thus you will tell the Israelites: ‘You yourselves have seen that I have spoken with you from heaven. 20:23 You must not make gods of silver alongside me,57 nor make gods of gold for yourselves.58
20:24 ‘You must make for me an altar made of earth,59 and you will sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings,60 your sheep and your cattle. In every place61 where I cause my name to be honored62 I will come to you and I will bless you. 20:25 If you make me an altar of stone, you must not build it63 of stones shaped with tools,64 for if you use your tool on it you have defiled it.65 20:26 And you must not go up by steps to my altar, so that your nakedness is not exposed.’66
