comment Why should an altar be made with uncut stone?
@JonEricson You should know that the 'parallel' verse in Deuteronomy is used in Jewish law to forbid all metal implements in hewing the stones for the altar. They can be hewn with anything except metal for this reason.

I note that the Masoretic text referenced in my answer combines your verse 2 and 3, hence my referencing 20:21.
