Hunc a tuis aris arcebis.

I'm doing a bit of revision, and have come across this sentence (again with no context). Does it mean 'You will keep him away from your altars'?

Oooh...

Some people give up smoking. Others give up drinking. I think I'm going to give up checking Amazon.com. I've just found Wheelock's 6th edition...$14.67. (Only $14.66 more than I have right now in spending money!) I"m practically salivating.
