Exodus 17 ©
The people murmur for water at Rephidim, and are sent for it by God to the rock in Horeb. Amalek is overcome by the holding up of Moses' hands. God's vengeance against Amalek, in token of which Moses buildeth the altar JEHOVAH-nissi.
Wherefore the people cdid *chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye d*tempt the LORD?
kBehold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
And Moses said unto nJoshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the orod of God in mine hand.
But Moses' hands were rheavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur sstayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
And Joshua *discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
And the LORD said unto Moses, tWrite this for a memorial in a book, and *rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for uI will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
