Deuteronomy 27:5
Context
The Altar on Mount Ebal

1And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this day. 2And it shall be on the day when you shall pass over Jordan to the land which the LORD your God gives you, that you shall set you up great stones, and plaster them with plaster: 3And you shall write on them all the words of this law, when you are passed over, that you may go in to the land which the LORD your God gives you, a land that flows with milk and honey; as the LORD God of your fathers has promised you. 4Therefore it shall be when you be gone over Jordan, that you shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and you shall plaster them with plaster. 5And there shall you build an altar to the LORD your God, an altar of stones: you shall not lift up any iron tool on them. 6You shall build the altar of the LORD your God of whole stones: and you shall offer burnt offerings thereon to the LORD your God: 7And you shall offer peace offerings, and shall eat there, and rejoice before the LORD your God. 8And you shall write on the stones all the words of this law very plainly. 9And Moses and the priests the Levites spoke to all Israel, saying, Take heed, and listen, O Israel; this day you are become the people of the LORD your God. 10You shall therefore obey the voice of the LORD your God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command you this day.
