27:6 The altar that you build shall thus be made of whole stones. It is on this [altar] that you shall sacrifice burnt offerings.

27:7 You shall also sacrifice peace offerings and eat there, rejoicing before God your Lord.
Vezavachta shlamim ve'achalta sham vesamachta lifney Adonay Eloheycha.
27:8 On the stones, you shall write all the words of this Torah in a clear script.
Vechatavta al-ha'avanim et-kol-divrey hatorah hazot ba'er heytev.



Commentary:

clear script
  (Ibn Ezra; Septuagint); cf. Habakkuk 2:2. Ba'er Hetiv in Hebrew. Or, 'in clear language' (Targum; Radak, Sherashim; cf. 1:5), indicating that the Torah was written on the stones in 70 languages (Sotah 32b; Targum Yonathan; Rashi). Some say that the stones were plastered, inscribed, replastered and then inscribed again (Malbim).
