    11 There
    both Abram and Jacob had built altars to God.
    12 Moses had told Joshua to build an altar on Mount Ebal,
    and to have the people proclaim blessings from Mount Ebal and curses from Mount Gerizim.1

    Hi, Mrs. Jean,

    I am sorry about being late to contact to you after e-mailing.

    Here is my Question.

    Above sentence is what I just copy from your PDF.

    Is it true to blessings from Mount Ebal and curses from Mount Gerizim?

    I just read Deuteronomy 11:29; 27:1–26 and I found it was reversed.
    Is there any your different intention or just error?

    Anyway, your spiritual insights in the sentence and questions of the story is great and awesome !

    Thank you so much !

    From Carrollton, TX.

    • You are right! It’s an error. It should read: “… to have the people proclaim blessings from Mount Gerizim and curses from Mount Ebal.” Thanks for letting me know. I’ll get those updated as soon as I can.
