 11:29
11:29 When God your Lord brings you to the land which you are about to occupy, you must declare the blessing on Mount Gerizim, and the curse on Mount Ebal.
Vehayah ki yevi'acha Adonay Eloheycha el-ha'arets asher atah vah-shamah lerishtah venatatah et-habrachah al-har Gerizim ve'et-haklalah al-har Eyval.



Commentary:

declare the blessing
  (Ibn Ezra; Ramban). Or, 'Place the blessers' (Targum; Rashi). See Deuteronomy 27:12, Joshua 8:33.

  About one mile to the west of Shechem, currently known as Jebel et-Tor, 2849 feet high.

Mount Ebal
  Or Eival. A mountain 3077 feet high (the highest point in Samaria), some two miles north-east of Mount Gerizim (cf. Ramban).
