 20:20
 20:21
20:21 Make an earthen altar for Me. You can sacrifice your burnt offerings, your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle on it. Wherever I allow My name to be mentioned, I will come to you and bless you.
Mizbach adamah ta'aseh-li vezavachta alav et-oloteycha ve'et-shlameycha et-tsoncha ve'et-bekarecha bechol-hamakom asher azkir et-shmi avo eleycha uverachticha.



Commentary:

burnt offerings
  See note on Genesis 8:20. Also see Exodus 24:5.

peace offerings
  See Leviticus 3:1. Also see Exodus 24:5, 32:6. Or, 'fellowship offerings.'

Wherever I allow...
  That is, in the Holy Temple, where the Tetragrammaton was used in prayers and blessings (Sotah 38a; Rashi).
