Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What did these 7 altars correspond to?
וַיִּקָּ֥ר אֱלֹהִ֖ים אֶל־בִּלְעָ֑ם וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֵלָ֗יו אֶת־שִׁבְעַ֤ת הַֽמִּזְבְּחֹת֙ עָרַ֔כְתִּי וָאַ֛עַל פָּ֥ר וָאַ֖יִל בַּמִּזְבֵּֽחַ׃
God manifested Himself to Balaam, who said to Him, “I have set up the seven altars and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar.”
Before each of attempt to curse the Bnei Israel, Bilam built 7 altars and offered 7 sacrifices.
This was intended to correspond to Adam, Hevel , Noach, Avraham, Yitzchak, Yakov and Moshe who also built altars.
Others say that they symbolized the 7 altars built by the Patriarchs.
