Gerazim, and the curses on Mt. Ebol.  This is pertinent because you see, because as they would enter the land these were two mountains on opposite sides of each other, they would be able to see the blessings and they would be able to see the curses.  In past teachings we’ve had images that showed the stark differences between the mountains.  Mt Gerazim with the greenery and life, and Mt. Ebol with its bareness.  That in essence where God tells his people to keep all the rules and laws that he sets before them.. Now Going forth to chapter 12, God tells them to destroy all of the high places….
