EJ&T Deuteronomy 16: Don't plant trees near God's altar or set up images that God hates

In the Every Jot and Tittle project, I am listing all of the Bible's commandments from Genesis to Revelation, in accordance with Jesus's words in Matthew 5:18-19. I have no idea how many commandments I'll find, but Jewish tradition claims there are 613. See here for a list of those that I've found so far.

  1. Eat unleavened bread for six days during the Passover.
  2. Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the Lord thy God. Deuteronomy 16:8

  3. Don't plant trees near God's altar.
  4. Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee.Deuteronomy 16:21

  5. Don't set up an image that God hates.
  6. Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy God hateth. Deuteronomy 16:22
