8 30 Then Joshua built an altar in Mount Ebal to Yahweh, the God of Israel, 8 31 as Moses the servant of Yahweh had commanded the people of Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, "an altar of unhewn stones, upon which no man has lifted an iron tool"; and they offered on it burnt offerings to Yahweh, and sacrificed peace offerings. 8 32 And there, in the presence of the people of Israel, he wrote upon the stones a copy of the law of Moses, which he had written. 8 33 And all Israel, sojourner as well as homeborn, with their elders and officers and their judges, stood on opposite sides of the ark before the Levitical priests who carried the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, half of them in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of Yahweh had commanded at the first, that they should bless the people of Israel. 8 34 And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessing and the curse, according to all that is written in the book of the law. 8 35 There was not a word of all that Moses commanded which Joshua did not read before all the assembly of Israel, and the women, and the little ones, and the sojourners who lived among them.
