Today I will build God’s altar everywhere and offer prayers and the sacrifice of a grateful heart. This altar will remind me of daily decisions: to choose the Lord (Bethel-house of God) or to chose the world (Ai-heap of ruins).
Abram traveled to the hill country east of Bethel and camped between Bethel and Ai, where he built another altar and worshiped the Lord.
Contemporary English Version
