Deuteronomy 27:4

Context
27:4 So when you cross the Jordan you must erect on Mount Ebal 1  these stones about which I am commanding you today, and you must cover them with plaster.

1 tc Smr reads “Mount Gerizim” for the MT reading “Mount Ebal” to justify the location of the Samaritan temple there in the postexilic period. This reading is patently self-serving and does not reflect the original. In the NT when the Samaritan woman of Sychar referred to “this mountain” as the place of worship for her community she obviously had Gerizim in mind (cf. John 4:20).
