20 Justice, justice alone shall you pursue, so that you may live and possess the land the Lord, your God, is giving you.
Illicit Worship. 21 You shall not plant an asherah of any kind of wood next to the altar of the Lord, your God, which you will build; 22 nor shall you erect a sacred pillar, such as the Lord, your God, hates.
