I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “altar”.

and stood beside the brasen altar.

Joe 2:17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD,

Where is their God?

and he said, Smite the lintel of the door,

and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.

Mal 2:13 And this have ye done again,
covering the altar of the LORD with tears,
with weeping, and with crying out,
insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more,
or receiveth it with good will at your hand.
