    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:21

    No te plantarás bosque de ningún árbol cerca del altar del SEÑOR tu Dios, que te harás.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 16:21

    Verse 21. Thou shalt not
    plant thee a grove, &c.] We have already seen that groves were planted about idol temples for the purpose of the obscene worship performed in them. (See on "Deuteronomy xii. 3".) On this account God would have no groves or thickets about his altar, that there might be no room for suspicion that any thing contrary to the strictest purity was transacted there. Every part of the Divine worship was publicly performed, for the purpose of general edification.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. Thou shall not
    plant thee a grove of any trees , etc.] Of any sort of trees, as oaks or any other; not but that it was lawful to plant trees and groves of them, but not for a religious or idolatrous use: particularly near unto the altar of the Lord thy God, which thou shalt make thee ; as the Heathens did near their altars, lest it should be thought to be done for a like superstitious and idolatrous use; which evil the Jews sometimes fell into in the times of wicked reigns, and which their good and pious kings removed and destroyed; (see 2 Kings 18:4 21:3 23:4,7,14,15) and Hecataeus f186 , an Heathen historian, relates of the city of Jerusalem, that there were there no image, nor plantation, nor grove, nor any such thing.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-22 - Care is taken for the due
    administration of justice. All persona regards must be laid aside, so that right is done to all, and wrong to none. Care is taken to prevent following the idolatrous customs of the heathen. Nothing belies God more, or tends more to corrupt the minds of men, than representing and worshipping, by an image, that God, who is an almighty and eternal Spirit, present every where. Alas! even in gospel days, and under a better dispensation, established upon bette promises, there is a tendency to set up idols, under one form of another, in the human heart __________________________________________________________________
